New Playground at Bishopstown Park

Cork City Council is delighted to see its latest playground opened just in time for the Christmas holiday period. Bishopstown Playground, located at Bishopstown Park near Bishopstown Tennis Club, represents an investment of over € 600k by the Council in enhancing play facilities in the South West of the City. The playground construction was completed on schedule and adds further to the Park which already comprises of walkways, playing pitches, pitch and putt course and informal recreation space.


The playground which is all inclusive and capable of being used by those of mixed abilities, comprises of modular climbing units, tower slides, balancing bars, earth mounds and sand areas, see saws etc and has a Toddler area as well as a Juvenile area. The facility is gated, protected by CCTV, and will be inspected by City Council staff daily similar to other playgrounds in the City. Additional car parking was provided at the Park as part of the Project to cater for demand.


Lord Mayor Cllr Mick Finn states that he  “ very much welcomes the new challenging integrated play space at Bishopstown”


The City Council asks that those using the Park,  particularly in the first few weeks when there is a novelty bounce to attendances, would respect local residents and park responsibly.

The playground will be open from 9am to 4pm, 7 days a week.
