Mayfield - The Glen Slí na Sláinte Walk
The 2.5km route (5 Km return) begins outside Mayfield Leisure, Sports and Fitness Centre.
From the fitness centre turn right and walk along Old Youghal Road, passing the Library and Church, as far as Dillon’s Cross. At Dillon’s Cross walk across the pedestrian crossing and turn right along Ballyhooly New Road. Continue along until you reach Keating’s Furniture Store. Here turn left and enter the picturesque Glen Park.
This is a natural park, home to many wild species of flora and fauna and is an excellent retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Walkers may follow the series of tracks around the lakes or alternatively take the direct route to the end of the park as far as the North Ring Road. At the end of the park turn around and walk back to the sports centre to complete your 5km walk.
Recommended as a daytime walk only.
