How to Access
Tramore Valley Park

Vehicle access

There is only one access point for vehicles

1. Off the South Link Road opposite the Black Ash Park and Ride. It is the same access point for the civic amenity site.

Pedestrian Access

There are two locations to access the park on foot and by bicycle.

3. Via the Eastern Park Walkway, adjacent to Willow Park, close to Gaelscoil na Duglaise.


2. Access via Half Moon Lane is not available and is currently under review.

 Update in relation to Half Moon Lane Access:

A considerable amount of work has been carried out by Cork City Council to improve the Vehicle access to the Park via South Link Road and Pedestrian access via Eastern Park Walkway, which enabled the official opening of the park on the 22nd of May 2019.  Many users are now enjoying access to the Park, however, it is recognised that there is a need and a demand for access to the Park via Half Moon Lane.

The process of assessing a safe means of access and egress via Half Moon Lane has begun, which, when completed, will ensure the safety of pedestrians and cyclists availing of the park and will also take into consideration the safe movement of local vehicular traffic.

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.
