Mallow Park Upgrade Plan

Mallow Town Park,is to get major improvements including a new multi-use events area and jogging trail, after Planning Permission was secured by Cork County Council.

Bord Pleanála has approved the council’s plans for an ambitious programme of works to existing facilities in Mallow’s main park, including the construction of angling stands on the banks of the River Blackwater as well as a new skate plaza and pump track for bikers.

Other proposed measures include the construction of new entrances and footpaths, the widening of existing footpaths and footbridge, and a reconfiguration of the current playing pitches and training area.

The council also plans to redevelop the playground and provide new car and bicycle parking facilities as well as an orienteering course.

New landscaping is also planned, while the council will also place existing overhead powerlines that cross Mallow Town Park underground as part of the project.
