GREENWAY PROJECTS WHICH INTERSECT
The 16km traffic-free North Down Coastal Path winding through Holywood, Cultra, Helen’s Bay and Crawfordsburn into Bangor.
A 14km former railway line running north out of Newtownards turning sharply east below Bangor and across the top of Ards Peninsula to Donaghadee.
