General information

Roe Valley Country Park
Roe Valley Country Park 010
Roe Valley Country Park 022

This scenic and tranquil park on the outskirts of Limavady offers spectacular riverside views and woodland walks along with opportunities for salmon and trout fishing, canoeing, rock climbing and orienteering.

The river plunges through spectacular gorges and its banks are clothed in mature woodland. The park is home to foxes, badgers and otters and over 60 species of birds have been seen there. In springtime, the woodland floor is covered with a carpet of wild flowers.

There is a disabled angler's jetty by the river and also for the disabled visitor there is a specially designed trail emphasising the wildlife of the park. This includes an audio guide for blind and partially sighted visitors. Also worth a visit is the newly refurbished ‘Ritters Tea Room’ which opens daily.

Visitors can learn about the industrial and natural heritage of the area in the museum and countryside centre. The remains of buildings used in the linen industry and a restored water wheel can also be seen and much of the original equipment is preserved including ruined water mills used in linen production. In addition, find out more about Ulster’s first domestic hydro-electric power station, which operated from here under the guidance of local genius J.E.Ritter.
