Gortin Glen Forest Park
An agreement has been put in place between Fermanagh and Omagh District Council and Forest Service NI (April 2019), 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 including a destination play park, trim trail, additional parking (all now open) and the creation of Mountain Bike Trails. The Mountain Bike Trails are due to be finished and ready sometime in late February 2020.

The development works reflects the Council’s investment priorities linked to health, well-being 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 well-being for residents of the Fermanagh and Omagh District and its visitors.

Current Opening Times
The park gates are open 24 hours.
Parking in the Forest Park is free.
