Antrim Lough Shore Park Heritage

The Lough Shore Park in Antrim is about to be transformed with a new Lough Neagh Gateway Centre. The new Gateway Centre flagship facility will have stunning views over Lough Neagh and will feature a ground floor café with outdoor terrace and first floor dining area. The Centre will also have a ground floor multi-purpose room for hire and modern public toilets incorporating showering facilities for water sports users. The LNLP will contribute to the heritage elements of the surrounding area of the Park through interpretation and an audio trail to create awareness of Lough Neagh Heritage. The project also intends to install a unique Sculpture for navigational and biodiversity purposes. The project will increase peoples understanding of the heritage of the Lough and enhance peoples understanding of the industrial and natural heritage of the northern shoreline of the Lough through a new Lough Neagh Interpretation & Audio Trail and interpretation in the new Gateway Centre. Access from the water will also be improved through the creation of a sculpture which will interpret the folklore of the Lough but also act as a transit navigational marker.
