CONNSWATER COMMUNITY GREENWAY
BELFAST, CO. ANTRIM
The Connswater Greenway is a landmark project that is reconnecting some of the most deprived wards of inner city Belfast with open and green spaces, positively impacting on over 40,000 people, providing flood protection, new habitats and regenerating rivers, parkland and communities through its programme for outreach and access to health. An original masterplan for the project was conceived by the Paul Hogarth Company in 2005, and the Phase 1 design team has completed the first major part of the project.
The £30million Connswater Community Greenway has been conceived to reconnect communities in East Belfast. The park will link existing parkland and open space with adjacent sections of inner city streetscape which, by the creation of a green corridor, will benefit both people and wildlife.
