Don't hibernate this winter, get walking!

Struggling to get outdoors now the clocks have turned back and we naturally want to hibernate?

Connswater Community Greenway in partnership with Outdoor Recreation NI are launching a walking group starting on Wednesday 8th November beginning at 2pm.

It doesn’t matter what your fitness levels are and you don’t need any fancy equipment, just throw on a pair of comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water. 

Locals attend opening of a new section of the Greenway

Hundreds of locals flocked to a new section of the Connswater Community Greenway this weekend to celebrate the opening.  The new section, which connects the Beersbridge Road to Grand Parade, includes the ‘green heart’ of the Connswater Community Greenway – The Hollow. A meeting point for Knock, Loop and Connswater Rivers and  the location of the historic 17th Century Conn O’Neill bridge, The Hollow is best known for the reference made to it in the song ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ by East Belfast musician Van Morrison.
