Newry and Mourne offers a wide range of facilities for children. As well as pleasant rural walking, cycling
and fine beaches, there are excellent play areas in many of our parks, notably Warrenpoint, Kilbroney
Park (Rostrevor) and Slieve Gullion Forest Adventure Park.
Opened in June 2012, this playpark has something for everyone and is guaranteed to keep kids (of al
l ages) entertained. It includes the following: A toddler's area, adventure and play equipment for the
older kids, the "Slieve Gullion ZIP" and even a trim trail for the adults! Let the kids burn off some
energy while the adults relax and enjoy a coffee at the Slieve Gullion Courtyard.
The 97 acres which form Kilbroney Park lie close to the shore of Carlingford Lough in the shadow of the forest-clad Slieve Martin.
As a backdrop to Kilbroney Park stands the impressive 4,000 acre Rostrevor Forest rising sharply from 30m to 500m above sea level. Planted in 1931 mostly with coniferous species, the forest has a breathtaking two mile forest drive providing panoramic views over Carlingford Lough, an old oak plantation dating from the 18th Century, the famous 40 tonnes "Cloughmore" or "Big Stone" and a host of animals ranging from grouse and irish jays to pine martens, red and grey squirrels, foxes and badgers.
