55 hectares of mixed woodland along with open parkland and scenic woodland walks.

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

There are over 7km of stunning woodland and riverside walks. If visitors are lucky enough, they may get the chance to experience and see the wonderful sights of the breath-taking waterfall walk. For less able visitors, there is 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.

Please note: Path on east bank is closed due to subsidence.
