McCarthy: Tramore Valley Park Update, May 2018

Posted by admin

      Independent Cllr Kieran McCarthy has welcomed progress on the opening of Tramore Valley Park. Given the increased amount of additional work necessary to satisfy Health and Safety requirements the opening is scheduled for early Autumn 2018. Information given to Cllr McCarthy at last week’s City Council meeting outlined that a works programme to address the essential works necessary prior to opening are presently underway: it includes additional carparking, realignment of the main access road from the South City Link, creation of internal roundabout and, segregation of the civic amenity activities from park activities. These works are essential in the context of satisfying Health and Safety requirements for a park and civic amenity site users. A Management Plan to manage, open and maintain the park is also being prepared at present.

Cllr McCarthy noted:” While the BMX track and a number of playing pitches in the park are used from time to time, access for the general public has been limited due to a number of staff shortages and operational issues. It will be great to see the park fully opened and become a key in the expansion of the city, ensuring that family, community and park life all remains at the heart of a bigger city centre. It will be the equal of the Ballincollig regional park in the city. Family and community life will be enhanced by the opening of this enormous resource”.
