Highly impressed! This was my 1st visit to the park and I had a great day walking the various trails. The new play area looks brilliant & hopefully this will encourage more families to use this valuable park. It would have been lovely if there had been some picnic tables at the Derryadd car park end of the park, had to sit on the kerb to eat!

Beautiful place and on everyone’s door step and free as well. Our kids enjoyed the new play area and ideal for them + adults to get about the walks and explore even on bikes.

We walked the long walk round the Peatlands and really enjoyed the diversity of habitats and wildlife. A well-marked, well marked, litter free delightful walk. We wished there had been a bird hide on Lough Derryadd. First class wildlife reserve. Thanks.
