Essential woodland maintenance work has now commenced. Work will continue through to Christmas. The main purpose of the work is for the removal of invasive species so that natural woodland regeneration can occur. We appreciate your patience while this essential work takes place.

Ramblers must avoid the working area (indicated by hazard warning tape) and avoid the steep drops that laurel clearing has exposed at this time. Please avoid exposed banks and take extra care until the ground settles. 

Horse riding is strictly by invitation only and limited to the Designated Riding Zone (maps available on request for members) 

If you are interested in regular walking/jogging in Mourne Park, Kilkeel, please email:
