There’s a stretch of land just outside Belfast with a glistening river running through it and woodland and magic running throughout it. It’s one of the largest community and environmental schemes in Europe and it’s just waiting for you to come and explore it all.

To Colin Glen.

We’re a community trust run by a voluntary board of directors representing everyone in West Belfast. We offer opportunities to local young people and are backed by The Prince’s Trust.

But that’s not all…

Explore our world-class attractions
