Region: Northern Ireland

The Connswater Community Greenway is a £40 million investment in East Belfast. The project has been developed by the East Belfast Partnership and is being delivered by Belfast City Council. It is funded by the Big Lottery Fund, Belfast City Council and the Department for Social Development. The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development’s Rivers Agency is working in partnership with the CCG to deliver elements of the East Belfast Flood Alleviation Scheme which will help to reduce flooding in east Belfast.

The Connswater Community Greenway will create a 9km linear park through East Belfast, following the course of the Connswater, Knock and Loop Rivers, connecting the open and green spaces. The Connswater River is currently dirty and neglected. As part of the project the rivers will be cleaned and brought back to life. The Greenway will create vibrant, attractive, safe and accessible parkland for leisure, recreation and community events and activities.
