Pontoon Walkway, Midleton, Cork

Pollinator friendly, Public Realm

Midleton’s Pontoon Walkway marks the completion of the first phase of Cork County Councils plans for the development of a pedestrian and cycle route from Ballinacurra to Midleton.

Green Studio Landscape Architecture were appointed by Cork County Council to design and prepare plans for tender issue to allow for the landscaping of the route. We worked closely with senior engineers from the traffic and transportation dept, the local area engineer, ecologist and residents groups. The final scheme comprises a mix of pollinator friendly perennial planting with ornamental grasses, groundcover planting, woodland edge, native hedge, bulb and tree planting.
