Lagan Towpath

With over 500,000 recorded visits a year, the 11-mile Lagan Towpath connecting Stranmillis, Belfast with Sprucefield, Lisburn qualifies as the most popular public pathway in Northern Ireland.  It is also an integral part of the award-winning National Cycle Network (NCN) route between Lisburn and Jordanstown via Belfast.  During 2006/7 works undertaken in partnership with SUSTRANS on the Edenderry, Drumbridge and Lambeg sections of towpath have widened and improved the surface to NCN standards, wherever practicable.

Anyone wishing to organise an event, such as a sponsored walk, on the towpath, should notify the Department (as owners) in advance for approval.  To do this please contact denise.stewart@dcalni.gov.uk.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE TOWPATH BETWEEN MOIRA STATION AND SOLDIERSTOWN CAR PARK WILL BE CLOSED FOR TWO WEEKS FROM TUESDAY 10TH FEBRUARY 2015 FOR MAINTENANCE.  IN CASE OF EMERGENCIES OR QUERIES PLEASE CONTACT RIVERS AGENCY ON 02892606100.  APOLOGIES FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED
