CRAIGAVON BLACK PATHS
“Craigavon Black Paths”
Not that well known outside of the Upper Bann area, but integral to the mini metropolis of Portadown, Lurgan and the ‘new city’ of Craigavon that stalled in its development, the Black Paths create a network of traffic-free routes of unparalleled density anywhere in Ireland.
|Type||Existing pathway network|
