Project Summary

The Connswater Community Greenway has created a 9km linear park connecting people and places throughout east Belfast. The Greenway follows the course of the Connswater, Knock and Loop Rivers, connecting the open and green spaces.

Victoria Park included the large-span Sam Thompson Bridge connecting to Titanic Quarter. Orangefield Park included extensive areas of wetlands, created as part of the flood protection measures and contributing to the increased biodiversity.
