Cork County Council has unveiled plans to redevelop Tip O’Neill Park and the grounds of Spa House in Mallow. The plans, which were revealed at a recent meeting of the Kanturk-Mallow Municipal District, include the planting of pollinator-friendly trees, hedges and meadow, resurfacing of the car park at Spa House with new paving and seating. In addition, accessibility to the park and grounds is to be improved, with upgrading of the main path in Tip O’Neill Park and pedestrian crossings to be installed connecting the park with both Castlepark and Muddy Hill. It is expected that the plans will be put out for public consultation in January.
Cllr. Gearóid Murphy said that the plans would breathe new life into the park and grounds: “This proposal will link in perfectly with the council’s plans to upgrade our public spaces in Mallow and will be a great resource for both local people and tourists alike. The concept images in particular are very aesthetically pleasing and it will all look wonderful once the project is completed.”
