“Connswater Community Greenway”
When is a greenway not just a greenway? The award-winning Connswater Community Greenway is so much more – a £40m investment making East Belfast a better place to live, by delivering a 9km linear park with 16km of interconnected pathways, a new focal point for the city in CS Lewis Square, all part of an integrated flood allievation project.

GREENWAY PROJECTS WHICH INTERSECT
A developing system of urban cycleways to link every part of the city and the surrounding greenway route network.
A missing link in an otherwise excellent chain of traffic-free routes between Belfast and Bangor, a 4km urban greenway in Sydenham.
A popular 11km route developed by Sustrans along the old Belfast to Comber railway line opened in 2008 – the original Northern Ireland greenway.
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 Connswater Greenway, or if you want to submit a picture or video to this page, please get in contact.
