Family Fun Day at Tramore Valley Park


Family Fun Day at Tramore Valley Park
Amazing potential

The former Kinsale Road Landfill will host a day of family fun activities to celebrate the unveiling of the master plan for Tramore Valley Park by Lord Mayor Cllr. John Buttimer on Saturday 25th August.

A family sports day, birds of prey, bouncing castles, face painting, balloon making and zorbing are some of the activities organized throughout the day. A picnic area with food stalls, electric vehicles, polocrosse demonstrations and rally vehicles are also planned to encourage visitors to view the master plan for the area and discuss the various elements with representatives of Cork City Council.

Michael O’ Brien, Senior Engineer, Cork City Council said “The aim of the event is to showcase the potential of the former landfill in a new role as a year round active and energetic family leisure and recreation destination; we hope to engage a large cross section of the public for feedback as well”. He added “The open day will allow members of the public the opportunity to explore and enjoy an area of over 160 acres which in the future will be transformed into a large, flexible area to cater for wide range of events, attractions and programs unique to Cork.”

Guided walking tours, wildlife talks, orienteering trails and an open top bus are some of the imaginative ways visitors may discover the untapped potential of the area over the event all of which will be stewarded by local resident and community associations.

Tramore Valley Park Family Fun Day takes place on Saturday August 25th from 11.00-16.00 at former Kinsale Road Landfill, admission is free and ample onsite parking is available.
