Plans for lido in Cork city
An ambitious proposal to create a lido in the City will involve a search for a suitable site from the bridge at the Anglers Rest Bar and Restaurant in Carrigrohane to Blackrock village.
Both sides of the river will be considered for the 50m outdoor pool as well as a number of inland sites, including Tramore Valley Park.
Malachy Walsh and Partners have been commissioned to undertake a feasibility study on the prospect of a lido for Cork.
The Irish Examiner reports the survey of the sites is expected to take 10-12 weeks.
The Lido Cork campaign want to see a resource developed that will help create a community in the city, bringing people together for outdoor leisure activities.
