Brought residents from a care home and was really impressed by their wheelchair access picnic table and toilet facilities. The views were beautiful with a lot of plants and insects. Facilities were well marked and clean.

Myself and my husband have been walking this park for years as has my father and we all used to LOVE it right up until people stopped lifting up after their dogs and throwing litter at their backsides. You now have to watch where you step otherwise you are guaranteed that you will step in dog poop. Which is so... More

Walk here regularly with dog. Peaceful pleasant walk offering varying levels for different walkers. Has a good road to it and small centre, well maintained and worth a visit to see waterfall.

Great walk through one of Ireland's lesser known natural landscapes....lead's on to Ervey Wood's.......some of the path's can be a bit steep and demanding especially during winter....but brilliant to see, especially for younger children....but you need to keep an eye on them.....steep falls.....fast river.....Well worth a visit...

Beautiful peaceful untouched scenery with a variety of paths to suit all. Lovely waterfalls and river winding its way through the countryside. Only downfall is it is quite far away from Derry/Causeway Coast!

What a find, from the cutest, quaintest little visitor centre, which wouldn't have looked out of place in a laird's castle, with immaculately clean toilets which greeted you with a blast of lovely warm air, to the walk itself, Ness Wood is just lovely. The whole areas is so well maintained and kept, the woods are beautiful and it is... More

Really enjoyed walks around the woods with my son's! Just wish there was better access to see the waterfall as it's difficult to see from the paths.
