Lagan Meadows Nature Trail

Walking Route

Lagan Meadows is a piece of the countryside within the heart of Belfast. There are grazed grasslands, haymeadows, woodland, and fen, and you will quickly forget you are in the city. You will hear jays and long-tailed tits, and see devil's-bit scabious, greater tussock sedge, and dragonflies.
