Lurgan Park is Northern Ireland’s largest and most beautiful urban park and Ireland’s second largest urban park, the biggest being Phoenix Park in Dublin. Located around an expansive man made lake, it has 5 km of pathways through mature woodland and open grassland. The Park was once part of the Brownlow estate and is still overlooked by Brownlow House today.
The park is over 250 acres in size and boosts many paths for walking, a super play area and large green spaces. The park can be found tucked in behind the market town of Lurgan and can be described as a ‘hidden gem’.
As well as a pleasant place to walk, Lurgan Park has much to offer the visitor, features include a water fountain, tennis courts, bowling green, cricket wicket and football pitches. Mobility scooters can be borrowed free of charge (pre booking is essential) for those less able to access the park. The lake offers an excellent setting for a spot of course angling. Tennis courts can only be booked 48 hours in advance of play and bookings can be made here.
The majestic Coalbrookdale Fountain takes pride of place at the top of the main avenue in the park and is always a focal point for young and old. Made of cast iron this fountain is one of the remaining four of its type left in the world.
