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

In the steep, wooded Glen of the Burntollet River, south-east 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.

Facilities include car park, visitors centre, toilets and picnic area.

Car parking at 4 points:
Main car park at Visitors Centre (access via Oughtagh Road).
Open access car park at main entrance (access via Oughtagh Road).

NB. Please note that due to flood damage to a section of the riverside pathway which leads from the visitor centre areas towards the Ness Wood is impassable.
