Visit to Gortin Forest Park

Club Members who visited Gortin Glen Forest Park on Wednesday 4 May 2022

The group was welcomed to Gortin Glen by Sean Harper a member of the management team responsible for the maintenance and development of the Forest Park. Sean explained that over the last few years several million pounds had been spent upgrading walks and cycle trails and improving visitor experience. The most eye catching feature was a new play park built around a Californian Redwood Tree. A café, open at the weekends and on public holidays has proved very popular. Local schools have access to a refurbished classroom an adult groups can book the covered barbecue area. Toile facilities have been upgraded and lovely wood carvings are encountered at every turn. After a visit to the deer enclosure the group repaired to the Glen Perk Restaurant for tea, coffee and scones.
