The Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr. Colm Kelleher will officially launch 8 newly installed city parklets this week, on August 31st and September 2nd.
Following a call-out for “parklet partners” in September 2020, a number of local businesses and community associations were selected to take part in the National Transport Authority-funded scheme. The parklets, designed by Siobhán Keogh Design and built by Benchspace Cork, are then planted and maintained by the “parklet partners”, with funding for their upkeep administered by the City Council.
The following parklets will be officially launched by the Lord Mayor on Tuesday 31st August:
Cook Street (Partner: Il Padrino restaurant)
South Mall (Partners: The Imperial Hotel and Cork Zero Waste)
Union Quay (Partner: Three Little Piggies Deli)
Sullivan’s Quay (Partners: The Quay Co-op, Creativity & Change – MTU Crawford and Green Spaces for Health)
Wandesford Quay (Partners: Lavit Gallery, Backwater Artists Group, Cork Printmakers and Wandesford Quay CLG)
