Woodland in Cronk Grianagh Park & the Heritage Trail


An advance warning for all users of Cronk Grianagh Park & the Heritage Trail:-

We’ll be carrying out some more work to the woodland areas in Cronk Grianagh Park, starting on Monday 19 February. This is part of our 5 year plan and a continuation of what we started last year.

This should take no longer than 3 weeks.

You may find some areas/paths are temporarily closed while the works are carried out, but we hope that any inconvenience will be kept to a minimum.

There will also be some work carried on the Heritage Trail, but again this shouldn’t cause any major issues.

If you have any problems during this period, please contact the Commissioners’ Office on 852808
