BELFAST TO CARRYDUFF GREENWAY
“The Carryduff Greenway”
The people of Carryduff have seen the development of the Connswater Community Greenway and hatched their own unique plan of action – building a movement from the ground up to create a vision of a linear park linking the town centre and Lough Moss leisure complex with the Mealough Reservoir and down into Knockbracken, Cairnshill and Belvoir.

GREENWAY PROJECTS WHICH INTERSECT
A developing system of urban cycleways to link every part of the city and the surrounding greenway route network.
Building on the popularity of the historic 15km Lagan Towpath route between Belfast and Lisburn, much-needed upgrades and extra capacity.
Successful greenway projects are driven by the passion of local people. If you have an update to share, a story to tell about the history of the route or future of the Belfast to Carryduff Greenway, or if you want to submit a picture or video to this page, please get in contact.
