An afternoon of free family fun and entertainment will take place in Forthill Park, Enniskillen on Easter Monday, 28 March 2016 from 2 pm – 4 pm.

The ‘Picnic in the Park’ event, which is organised by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, will include an Easter egg trail; real Easter chicks and rare breed hens. There will also be face painting; balloon modelling and music provided by Cathy McGovern from the beautiful bandstand located in the centre of the park.

The Council’s Biodiversity Officer will also be on hand to help people sow the seeds of summer in the park.

Encouraging families to make their way to Picnic in the Park on Easter Monday, Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Thomas O’Reilly, said:

“Forthill Park is a beautiful and historic setting for our Easter Picnic in the Park event.  The day is a great opportunity for families to get out and about and enjoy this wonderful space in the heart of Enniskillen.”

As well as the programme of family entertainment, people will also have the opportunity to climb the 108 steps to the viewing platform of Cole’s Monument, which was built in the centre of the park in memory of the late General the Hon. Sir G. Lowry Cole from 1845-57.

Admission to the event and its associated activities are free of charge.
