Craigavon City Park and Lakes

Craigavon City Park and Lakes

Craigavon City Park is the place to go if you’re into walking, cycling, jogging or dog walking. There are well-marked, surfaced trails throughout the 180 hectares of parkland that surround the two artificial lakes, including a three kilometre perimeter cycle path.  The paths are suitable for disabled users and families and incorporate the National Cycle Network Route 9.

A level tarmac from the Water Sports Centre car park runs round the lake. Angling from wheelchairs is possible around the harbour area but the path is not close enough to the waters edge elsewhere. Access for those with walking difficulties is good.

North Lake is designated as a rainbow trout fishery and is stocked regularly with up to 5000 trout.  Anglers may take their own boats. Boats are available for hire from Craigavon Borough Council Recreational Department.

From the park you can easily access Tannaghmore Gardens with a rare breeds farm which is home to many species of animal.
