Bann Boulevard - Portadown

The Bann Boulevard is the perfect place for a short walk or as a starting point for a much longer linear walk. The wide tarmac surface makes the path suitable for all users. The towpath is a shared use path and can be busy at times, however, cyclists should give way to pedestrians.
