Lord Mayor launches parklets

The Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr. Colm Kelleher officially launched eight recently installed city parklets last week including one on Ballincoillig Main Street which is partnered with Ballincollig Tidy Towns and Tudor Rose Florist following a call-out for ‘parklet partners’ last year. The partners plant and maintain the parklet with funding for their upkeep administered by the City Council. The Lord Mayor said, “The feedback to date is that there is a huge welcome for the parklets with every indication that they are being used on a daily basis by local people. Their success would not be possible without the dynamism and commitment of the partners and their ‘hands on’ presence ensures that the parklets remain as vibrant oases of bio-diversity and a place of rest and recuperation.” pic Resolute photographyLord Mayor of Cork Cllr.
