New walking map for the Greenway

As part of 'Living the Green Way' in June, the Connswater Community Greenway launched a new walking map which highlights a number of picturesque walks along the Greenway aimed at improving health and wellbeing. 

Wendy Langham, Programme Manager of the Connswater Community Greenway said: "The Connswater Community Greenway walking map is a fantastic resource for people to come and enjoy walking around the area. We are very fortunate to have such wonderful attractions in East Befast such as C.S. Lewis Square, the EastSide Visitor Centre, the James Ellis Bridge and the very beautiful Victoria Park and I would encourage people to get out, get active and have fun exploring."

It includes routes for people of all levels and abilities ranging from those out for a leisurely stroll to those wishing to get the pulse racing. 

The maps have been produced with the guidance of medical professionals from The Arches Centre and are available from The Arches Centre or online. Equally you can get them at EastSide Visitor Centre and Holywood Arches Library. 

The map was launched at Living the Green Way which was supported by The Urban Village initiative. The Urban Village initiative is a key action within the Northern Ireland Executive's 'Together: Building a United Community' strategy with one of its key commitments being to support healthy lifestyles and wellbeing of people in the EastSide Urban Village area.
