Wonderful spot to relax and unwind. Lots of little private spots to linger but still people watching is good. Lively enough at weekends. You would never think you were in a busy town, so peaceful and well kept.

This is a great local amenity in Ballincollig. Set next to the River Lee there are beautiful river side walks as well as a playground and playing fields. Ideal place to walk your dog or take your baby for a stroll in the buggy.

We go to the park to stake, walk, run, for the playground, to play in the river. It's an amazing amenity and a credit to the county council. The wildflower beds are spectacular in summer time. There needs to be investment in public toilets there,...More

Anyone can use the pitches informally, however if you are a club then you need to email parkusage (at) corkcoco ie for details. Some of the pitches are leased for 11 months to clubs.
