Ness Country Park

In the steep, wooded Glen of the Burntollet River, south-west of Derry/Londonderry, lies Ness Country park. 55 hectares of mixed woodland along with open parkland make up the Park which extends along both sides of the Burntollet River.

There are over 7km of stunning woodland and riverside walks including a magnificent waterfall walk. For the less able visitors, there is also a meadow walk which offers easy access walking.

The park also has picnic tables, wildlife ponds, wildflower meadows and a new visitor centre with local information and an exhibition on woodland biodiversity.
