Head east of the River Lagan and you’ll find yourself in EastSide. The beating heart of Belfast’s industrial past, this down-to-earth neighbourhood is thriving once as again, now as a hub for creativity, arts, design and alternative thinking.
The Connswater Community Greenway offers 16km of continuous cycle and walkway through east Belfast. Travel on bike or by foot from the Titanic Quarter through Victoria Park, via the Sam Thomspon Bridge and out to the heart of the Greenway, the unique event space and hub of activity, C.S. Lewis Square. Stop for refreshments at one of the numerous cafes along the route such as Jack Café and Lazy Claire. Try out some physical activity at one of the many play parks or leisure facilities located along the Greenway or take a stroll and catch a glimpse of the wildlife living in this unique urban green space.
Find one of our many hidden gems such as the wooded Cregagh Glen, all that remains of a forest that once covered 1000 acres or “down at the Hollow”, a location made famous through the lyrics of local legend Van Morrison but also known for The Conn O’Neill Bridge, said to date back to the 1600s.
Bursting with heritage, nature, wildlife and facilities to enjoy, there is something for everyone if you visit the Greenway. Check out our interactive map to get more information on the various locations.
