UCC WILDFLOWER MEADOW AND THE NEW CAVANAGH PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE
The bridge was opened in 2020 and as I last visited Cork in May 2019 this was my first opportunity to photograph but the strange thing is that I had believed that I had already photographed it on a previous visit.
University College Cork has named its new pedestrian bridge after philanthropist Dr Tom Cavanagh — the second campus structure to bear his surname.
The Cavanagh pedestrian bridge and riverside walk acts as a crucial link in the chain of connection between the campus core and the Western Road. It makes the unique green space on the northern side of the river available for use by the students, staff and members of the public, and consolidates the parkland character of the landscape amenity of the riverside grounds of the College.
