New park proposed for Blarney...

Cork City Council have purchased 6.5 acres of land in Blarney with the intention to develop an amenity park there. It will include wildflower meadows, a play area as well as a looped path for walking and running.

The 6.5 acres of land is situated between the River Martin and Waterloo Road in the centre of the village, just north of Blarney Woolen Mills.

In a statement, the Council said that the current grassland area would be “maintained and enhanced in the context of biodiversity and the natural environment.” 

While full development of the park will depend on available resources, it is hoped that some works to improve access will take place in the coming months.

The Council now intend to consult with the local community and Councillors as to how the park might be developed.
