Tramore Valley Park to open on Wed 22nd of May 2019

Update Mon 20th May 2019... This is a photo taken last week of the works under way at the Tramore Valley Park in preparation for the opening on Wednesday the 22nd of May 2019.

 Over on the left in the background is the existing car park. Note however in the foreground all the new car park spaces.

Are there enough to cater for a return of the weekly 5k parkrun???


After many false dawns, it finally looks as if the Tramore Valley Park is about to open! It will be
officially opened by Lord Mayor Mick Finn on Wednesday May 22nd 2019.

The City Council will also name the new 2.5 km looped walkway in the park after Rob Heffernan.

As you can see from the photo above, a new outdoor gym has been constructed and it is now ready for use.

Will the parkrun return? The last time the 5k parkrun was in Tramore Valley Park, there was none in Ballincollig and the Glen. With those up and running, that is going to limit the numbers at Tramore Valley Park if it makes a return.

As for when? Maybe they'll want to see what the usage of the park is like first on a Saturday morning before deciding. Surely though it's only a matter of time?
