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 contact barry.young@dcalni.gov.uk the Department (as owners) in advance for approval.
