Enjoy a stroll through the Plantin Park hidden away in the middle of Draperstown.
Parkland & Grassland, Riverside
Tarmac paths, steep in places
Draperstown village, stream
The walk is on surfaced pathways over footbridges and along a small tributary of the Moyola River. The trail can be accessed from the Derrynoid Road entrance or via Moykeeran Housing Estate on the Tobermore Road. Following a circular route the trail leads uphill to a view point with lovely views northwest towards Mullaghmore and Moydamlaght forest.
For such a small area there is a good mix of habitat that attracts birdlife, insects and wildlife including bats, grey squirrel and fox.
Take the Derrynoyd Road from the village of Draperstown, the entrance to the park is on the right hand side immediately after taking the Derrynoyd Road.
Dogs are allowed. Dogs to be kept under control
Children’s play park, seating, picnic area and a small playing field.
