While we were glad to see some green space in Cork city I did think the park looked a bit 'manufactured'. There wasn't much about it that was natural except the river bank.

The river, the foutains, duck and birds, trees and flowers and the city museum (free entrance): Fitzgerald Park is a nice place to have a walk, and there is a nice bridge just nearby. Good on the return walk from the city gaol and before Ucc campus for instance.

Im always looking for spots to go on walks and fitzgeralds park is great for this. Plenty of spots for a picnic and on the sunnier days when the cafe is open its a lovely treat for a coffee.

You must walk the "shakey" bridge, it is a suspension bridge. It crosses the River Lee and is a popular local place.
