Roe Valley Country Park

Roe Valley Country Park runs for three miles either side of the River Roe near Limavady where the river plunges through spectacular gorges, its banks clothed with mature mixed woodland. In springtime the woodland floor is covered with a carpet of wild flowers, and a fascinating variety of damp-loving plants thrive all the year round in the moist shade of the riverbank slopes.
 
The park houses a countryside centre and weaving museum, as well as Northern Ireland's first hydroelectric power station, opened in 1896, with much of the equipment intact and viewable. The centre also contains a 75 seater cafe serving a range of healthy-eating options and Fairtrade Products.
 
Activities include superb salmon and trout fishing, canoeing, rock climbing, orienteering and mile upon mile of riverside and woodland walks.
