A design competition, which has been launched for the redevelopment of Cork's Bishop Lucey Park between Grand Parade and South Main Street comes with a €30,000 prize
It is being promoted by Cork City Council and is being organised by the Royal Institute of Architects in Ireland.
The council says the redevelopment of the park for the 21st century is a key element in the development of the city’s core.
It said they hope the competition will improve the park’s functionality and usability as a “soft space” while at the same time respecting its history and heritage. The park includes the exposed remains of the medieval city wall.
