A fine riverside amenity, Doorly Park is around 15 minutes’ walk from Sligo Town Centre. Once a wetland, now a semi-wild landscaped park, it was transformed in the 19th century by Colonel WG Woodmartin. Today lakes, woodland and wetlands offer great picnicking and walking. There is a nature trail that takes in the best plant life, wildlife and views. Highlights include reed beds, native woodland and magnificent mountain views. The park is named after the late bishop of Elphin, Dr Edward Doorly. Recent developments include new cycling and walking trails. There is a walking trail with looped link pathways to connect existing woodland and cycling pathways. Additional facilities include a car park and picnic tables.
