New £300,000 ‘Walk to Fitness Trail’ to officially open in Benburb

A new £300,000 lottery-funded walking trail will officially open in Benburb this weekend.

The new ‘Walk to Fitness Trail’ at Benburb Playing Fields will be unveiled later today (Saturday) – a project delivered by Benburb & District Community Association.

The project received £308,103 initial funding from Space & Place towards the new facility, and is set to transform community life in the area.

The vital new facility includes a walking trail, as well as a playground, social hubs, a nature trail, grow wild area, picnic facilities and a basketball space.

Benburb and District Community Association, working in partnership with Mid Ulster Council, also used their Space & Place funding to erect fencing around the existing football pitch and crucially have installed flood lighting meaning that the facility can be enjoyed by local people year-round helping to reduce social isolation, particularly over the winter months.
