Walk Waterford Next Walk Ballysaggart Towers Lismore

Waterford Sports Partnership was delighted to see such a great turnout for Walk Waterford’s second walk in this year’s Autumn series. On Sunday 29th September 19 leisure walkers attended the 1.8km (plus optional additional 1.8km) World Heart Day walk in Kilbarry Nature Park.

The Park is situated on the Tramore Road near Superquinn, the car park entrance is via the Kingfisher Club.  On Sunday we where spoiled for choice as the park boasts four different trails.  As a group we decided to mix and match the trails as they are all interlinked to make sure we enjoyed a leisurely but invigorating stroll of at least 60 minutes. We walked to the top of the park where we took a quick group photo then headed back to the car park. Some walkers then wanted to continue to take the flat route around the park. There are many features and highlights in this fully accessible amenity, viewing points, picnic areas, distance markers and biodiversity information boards to name a few. Some of the group even tried out a few of the trim trail stations that are located at various spots along the way. 

A special thank you must go to our volunteers on the day (Deirdre and Catherine) who assisted WSP in leading this walk.

The next walk takes place, Sunday 6th October in Ballysaggart Towers. The meeting point is the car park at the towers at 2pm. This is an interesting easy looped trail that will excite young and old. The loop follows a steady climb up to the gates and returns down a steep decline back to the car park. All walkers will need suitable walking shoes (runners are ideal), warm clothing and a waterproof jacket. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
