Surrounded by trees, full of wildlife, the pleasant sound of the river flowing as you walk. If you like relaxing stroll amongst stunning scenery then Roe Valley Country Park merits a visit.
The Park is also home to much wildlife, including badgers, otters, foxes and over 60 species of birds.
There are several walking routes to choose from. There is even a disabled angler’s jetty and a specially designed trail emphasizing the wildlife of the park which includes an audio guide for the blind and partially sighted.
There is much more to do besides walking. Other recreations include rock climbing, orienteering, canoeing, and salmon and trout fishing.
If you need a break from your activities you can stop into the tea room for refreshments, and check out the visitor centre and onsite museum, where you can learn about the natural and industrial heritage of the area. While exploring the trails you can see the remains of the linen industry as well as the restored water wheel.
What is also interesting, is that Northern Ireland’s first electric power station can be found at the park.
Row Valley Country Park is a strong showcase for seeing the nature and wildlife of Northern Ireland, and is worth visiting.
