Extract from the above publication:
"The Marina is a delightful, tree-lined promenade on the south bank of the River Lee, of which it commands some exquisite peeps. Easy of acess, this promenade is a delight to visitors, and has been greatly improved in recent years, a bandstand having been provided; there are also seats and rustic shelters at intervals. Within easy reach of the park and racecourse."
