Re: Re: Most Beautiful Building in Cork?
Surprised no-body mentioned ‘Bishop Lucey Park’ – the “Peace Park” as a good example of open public space – small, but an important break in the rows of buildings that dominate the city centre. Cork as a whole suffers from insufficient public space. New parks will hopefully be realised at Horgan’s Quay and a significant 27-acre park along the Carrigrohane Straight. The Kinsale Road Landfill is being converted to a new public park – with sporting grounds, a wildlife park, forestry and green-spaces. I have high hopes for this endeavour.
As for squares, plazas etc – the docklands represents the best opportunity to considerately create such spaces.
