Douglas Community Association liases with Cork County Council in the management of a 5-acre park in the heart of Douglas. This park is a public amenity enjoyed by people of all ages and stages. It has a great variety of trees, oaks, ash, sycamore, birch and beech, provided by Cork Co. Council nursery. Many of these were planted in Autumn 1981 when Governor Sean Maccrann allowed prisoners from Cork Prison to plant the trees as a community project. These trees have matured beautifully and the spire of St. Luke’s Church of Ireland, a familiar sight to all natives of Douglas, creates a beautiful feature in the background. The park contains a State-of-the Art Playground provided by Cork Co. Council for children up to the age of 13. From early morning, joggers use the jogging path for a work-out.
