Delamont Country Park
On stunning beautiful Strangford Lough, amidst rolling countryside, Delamont offers you the chance to 'get away from it all' in tranquil, rural surroundings. The park's relaxing atmosphere makes it a place to dream and settle into the slow rhythm of the countryside. The park offers waymarked walks through woodland and open pasture, refreshments, outdoor adventure playground and seasonal events.
There are 5 way-marked walks: Mullagh Walk 1.0km; Garden Walk 1.2km; Strangford Walk 2.0km; Corbally Walk 4.0km; Longwalk 7.0km. All walks are wheelchair accessible and two mobility rambler scooters are available for use in the park.
The Strangford Stone, a 10 metre high megalith weighing in at 25 tonnes, was quarried from Mourne granite and erected using the muscle power of 1000 young people to mark the millenium.
Boat trips can be organised around Strangford Lough - an ideal opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacular scenery of this area of outstanding natural beauty.
