The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Co(C9H7O4)2(C12H10N2)2(H2O)2], consists of one Co2+ ion, one mono-deprotonated 2-(4-carboxyl­atophen­yl)acetate carboxylic acid, one 1,2-bis­(pyridin-4-yl)ethane mol­ecule and one water mol­ecule. The CoII atom is situated on a crystallographic center of inversion and is octa­hedrally coordinated by two O atoms from two anions, two N atoms of two 1,2-bis­(pyridin-4-yl)ethane mol­ecules and two O atoms from two water mol­ecules. A three-dimensional network is established by inter­molecular O—H⋯O and O—H⋯N hydrogen bonds
