Open for Play – Marina Activities in #UrbanOctober

The Marina is Open for Play every Sunday in October from 10am to 2pm.  Enjoy a car free experience in one of Cork’s most recreational and leisurely spaces.  Suitable for all ages and abilities, ‘Open for Play’ is a partnership between Cork Healthy Cities, Cork City Council, Public Participation Network, Learning Cities, Cork Cycling Campaign, Blackrock Playground Group and the residents of Blackrock.

Cork Healthy Cities involvement in the URBACT funded Playful Paradigm has supported the incorporation of  Play Streets and the Marina is the ideal space to test this project.
