Not what it used to be. Half the trees have been cut down for firewood. Car park also closed. Do yourself a favor and go to parkanour or peatlands park!!

Tranquil area in the town but let down by simple little things. A few seats along the paths would be good, no bins for litter for those that want to use them, entrance to car park from the main trunk road in and out of Dungannon is always locked.The other park at Killyman Rd side is in poor repair due to bonfire and is littered with broken glass, again no waste bins..

No action yet from Dungannon Council. Busy people I presume managing the "new town square" .

Hi Glenn,

For updates on the Windmill Wood Project please see here www.outdoorrecreationni.com/project/windmill-wood/

At this stage the project is still at the planning and design stage.

Tried to get the use of Windmill wood for an event in April 2015 and was assured "no problems" now in late planning stages and wood is now "not available". Did Dungannon district council not know what works were to take place??

Local Outdoors is a promotional platform for a range of outdoor spaces across Northern Ireland therefore we do not manage the parks.

The best person to speak to regarding Windmill Wood is the Head of Parks and Tourism at Dungannon Council, Nigel Hill nigel.hill@dungannon.gov.uk

The wood has become a bit of an eye sore rubbish glass everywhere but I hear the council is going to put cycle path round it maybe then they will look after it but I don't think so come night the drinkers and druggies will b in

Thanks for your comments via Local Outdoors, we are a promotional body for outdoor venues across Northern Ireland and are not responsible for the maintenance of the sites, however I have passed on your feedback to the countryside officer for this area.

New Tarmac laid in the car park to give a good base for a bloody bonfire. Access to park now almost blocked completely, 2 small paths made at the tower and the machinery has broken up the original paths.. Whoever supervised/ signed off on this job needs help..what a mess!!!

Many thanks for your feedback. Local Outdoors is a promotional platform for a range of outdoor spaces throughout Northern Ireland and we don’t actually own or manage any of the sites.

The works at Windmill Wood are part of the EARLS project in Dungannon – a major peace and reconciliation development project in the town, part of which includes a linear walk and cycle route through Windmill Wood.

We have passed on your comments to Mid Ulster Council (formerly Dungannon and South Tyrone Council) who are responsible for the management of the site.
