Gortin Glen Forest Park
An agreement has been put in place between Fermanagh and Omagh District Council and Forest Service NI, whereby the Council has taken responsibility for recreational areas of the Gortin Glen Forest Park.
The Council is currently progressing the redevelopment of Gortin Glen Forest Park to transform it into a family friendly outdoor experience.
Phase 1 of the development is progressing well with trail alignment work and car park surfacing almost complete. The work to complete the play park is still progressing and it is anticipated that the park will be open by early August 2019.
Phase 2 of the project will involve the creation of approximately 12 km of mountain bike trails and facilities.
The development works reflects the Council’s investment priorities linked to health, wellbeing and recreational outcomes as identified in the Fermanagh and Omagh 2030 Community Plan. The Council has identified the Forest Park as an outdoor resource that has potential for supporting the delivery of long-term health and wellbeing for residents of the Fermanagh and Omagh District and its visitors.
Both phases of the project are expected to be complete by late autumn 2019, which will offer improved experiences for all the family.
