Lurgan Park

Northern Ireland’s largest and most beautiful urban park, Lurgan Park is the second biggest Park in Ireland, 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 Castle today.

The Park recently went through a major refurbishment project supported by Heritage Lotttery Fund to a total of £1.4 million. 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’. The Park lake has been stocked with Roach, Breem and Tench and there are 20 newly constructed fishing stands allowing the visiting angler excellent access to this beautiful resource.

As well as a pleasant place to walk, Lurgan Park has much to offer the visitor, a super play park, including water feature, 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 or you can see the Park from a different view by hiring a rowing boat at weekends during the summer months.

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. The Park was one of the first Councils in Northern Ireland to gain the prestigious ‘Green Flag Award’, awarded to Parks providing a safe, secure setting that caters for the local community.
