Well worth the walk, the peace and the quiet. Go, go, go, and go see. It's amazing that such a piece of the natural countryside could be carved out/preserved in Swords.

Like walking through "trainspotting" - went with the missus and the dog and had to abandon the walk halfway because of all the boozing, spliffs, and methadone consumption going on. Subsequent research shows there's a HSE drug rehab centre nearby

The council have done a great job of creating this local amenity. The park goes along the rover from the town centre. The town park itself has lovely shady stops, tennis courts and views to the Castle.

Really nice big park for walking, cycling or exploring. Pretty river with tar footpath and lots of green space. There is a playground and exercise equipment too. Busy with dog walkers and joggers but never feels crowded.

If you fancy a serene walk in a large park then try this one. Lots of dog walkers use it, joggers and just walkers but its so big that it's never crowded. There is a playground if you have young kids and if you are...More

Large park with pathway and exercise equipment to use along the route. 10k Park run on every sat morning. Lots of people walk their dogs in this park.

This is a great place for a good walk. It is very well kept and you feel as if you are totally isolated from the busy world. A lovely stream runs through the valley with lots of wildlife.

This is a nice easy walk along the river that is well isolated from the noise and lights of the city. Lots of birds.
