Paths will enhance beauty spot - Nicholl
Alderman Tommy Nicholl MBE has welcomed plans for cycling, walking and running paths in Bracknamuckley Forest in Portglenone.
The new 2.6km paths will greatly improve the experience of the many visitors to the woodland beauty spot.
Ald Nicholl said: “We have some of the most stunning woodland in Northern Ireland right here on our doorsteps in Mid and East Antrim Borough. Bracknamuckley Forest is a hugely popular location for families and individuals who want to experience the beauty of the outdoors, and these new off-road paths will greatly enhance their visit. I have been pressing for this project over the last number of years and I am now delighted that it is coming to fruition. The tourism potential of Portglenone is immense and I thank Council for supporting me in this vision. Council has dedicated itself to improving the health and wellbeing of all our citizens throughout the pandemic, and going forward, this development will be another opportunity for people of all ages to get outdoors and appreciate nature at its best. As we move towards recovery from the pandemic, facilities such as this will also play an important role in enhancing our local visitor attractions.”
