Parks and Gardens, Cork: 6 reviews and 11 photos
When your legs start aching from the sightseeing or shopping, you can have a leisurely half hour in this quiet park right in the city centre. I came across it by accident, but it's a place well-known to the local people, who come here to have their lunch, bring their children to play or just sit there watching the world go by. As you enter it, opposite the gate you can see the remains of Cork mediaeval town walls. Walking along the main alleyway, you will soon come across the expressive statue of the onion seller by Seamus Murphy (1985). Near the other end of this little park there is another attraction - a fountain representing swans in flight commissioned for the city's 800th anniversary in 1985. When I was there a young man was poking in it with a stick looking for coins and he did pick up a few. So it seems that Cork now has its own Fontana di Trevi. No wonder. Who wouldn't like to see it again?
