About

Ballymoney’s Riverside Park is a semi-formal linear park in the heart of the town, running parallel to the railway line and following the course of the Ballymoney river.  A network of formal surfaced shared use paths allows walkers to choose a variety of different length walks ranging from 0.5 – 3.0 miles.  Walkers can extend their route by following the traffic-free Jubilee Way which connects the park with the Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre, or linking into the shared use path alongside the A26 carriageway.

The northern section of the park consists of deciduous woodland, while the southern end is characterised by riverside meadows and areas of open amenity grassland.  The central area around the main car park also provides toilets and a children’s play park facility.

The main car park, accessed from Armour Avenue, is the ideal starting point for a range of walks.  Walkers with limited mobility can choose a short 500m circular route taking in the fishing stands and wildlife area where the former duck pond used to be located.  Those walkers wishing to stretch their legs a bit further can choose to follow the line of the river in either a northerly or southerly direction from the car park.  Both options provide linear routes of approx. 650m and 900m respectively, and allow walkers to return to the starting point by broadly retracing their steps, with options for slight deviations by using the numerous footbridges crossing the river.

By using the neighbouring Jubilee Way, located just south of the car park, walkers can enjoy route options of upwards of 4 miles.
