The woodland walk was first created in the early 1980s and since there has undergone minor repairs. The woodland walk is prone to seasonal closures due to flooding, given its close proximity to the Lough. Ballyronan Marina has been extensively redeveloped in 2021 with the inclusion of on-water glamping pods adjacent to Ballyronan Wood.
This project will redevelop the woodland within Ballyronan as a quality off
road multi-use 1km trail.
The trail will contain interpretation panel depicting the flora & fauna of the area, way-marking. eco-plastic boardwalk in sections where flooding is prevalent, bench seating, art work and bird and bat boxes.
A total investment of £125,000 will be provided by the Department of Agriculture Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) and Mid Ulster District Council.
