Healthy fun in a safe environment at Castlecomer Discovery Park

Castlecomer Discovery Park reopens on June 25

Castlecomer Discovery Park will reopen tomorrow (June 25) on what promises to be one of the hottest days of the year.

With it's lakes and canopy of forestry it is the perfect playground for all ages.

With plenty of space in the great outdoors there is room for everyone to physically distance while having a fun time.

Visitors to Castlecomer Discovery Park can enjoy leisurely boating activities on the larger of our two picturesque lakes, in our stunning natural woodland setting. The lakes are surrounded by a variety of magnificent trees, and you can admire the backdrop of the beautiful recently restored 17th century stone bridge.

Our boating activities give you the chance to sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of our 80-acre woodland. So whether you’re after a fast-paced or leisurely cruise around the lake you can still fit in some exercise while having fun on our Pedal boats and Canadian canoes.

As well as boating, archery, biking and other activities the junior woodland adventure course will also open later this month along with the popular Toy Story Trail, which will run every day from June 25.

The family favourite movie Toy Story provides the theme for the family trail which brings families around the park as they hunt for clues and markers. Each child will receive a toy on completion of the trail. This is a great way for families to connect in nature while having lots of fun. The price is €7.50 per child (adults free).
With over 80 acres of woodland and lakeside to explore Castlecomer Discovery Park is the perfect place to experience nature, get fit and enjoy the great outdoors.
The four walks comprise of Ladies Loop which is 1.5 km, the Arboretum Loop which is 2km, the Captains loop which is 2km and the Ardra Loop which is 5km.
