  • Over the last couple of months alot of strangers and familes have discovered this Gem of a walk..Prams and young families are spending their weekends finding out the lovely river paths which are looped to get you back to the Centre. Big carparks are available and if you walk from the Roe Park Hotel up to the Carrick and back this would be over six miles travelled taking app a couple hours

    Personally speaking this walk should be promoted as much as possible as it is very good for your welfare and you get talking and meeting alot of new friends,
