Progress on new Marina Park in Cork City

It looks as if there is some movement on the new proposed Marina Park in Cork City! Funding has been secured to develop the old show grounds which is adjacent to the Pairc Ui Chaoimh stadium.

The following information was secured after a Freedom of Information request...

One of the big changes is the removal of the steam between Pairc Ui Chaoimh and the Lee Rowing Club and it will be diverted onto the existing stream to the south of the GAA grounds.

While this project will improve access for running and walking in that general area, it should probably be seen as the first step in the overall development of this new park. If the whole Marina was pedestrianised at weekends then it raises the possibility of holding a weekly 5k parkrun there.

Perhaps ;o)

More drawings and info can be seen on the Marina Park account on Twitter.
