Reply To: Look at de state of Cork, like!
I think the lake by Park Ui Chaoimh is called Lough Mahon
It’s called Atlantic pond. That whole area, including the land on which Pairc Ui Chaoimh built, was a mud flat before being reclaimed from the River Lee when a dyke (now called The Marina road) was built sometime in the 19 century. It was a part of route for the old Cork, Blackrock & Passage Railway line.
In the Cork City Council masterplan for the area there’s a proposal of developing the pond into a marina, and of
harnessing opportunity for recreation and water activities through the introduction of a new internal dock and potential marina, and the establishment of an internal waterway corridor extending through the area towards Atlantic Pond
I think this could be great for the area, as its so under-utilised at present.
