The Park's History

The Kinsale Road Landfill site first opened in the early 1960’s. Over the next 35 years, over 3 million tonnes of waste from Cork homes and businesses were landfilled on site. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a waste licence for the site in 1997 which regulates and monitors all activities on site. The Landfill site closed in July 2009.

Civic Amenity Site

The Civic Amenity Site is operated directly by Cork City Council.
