Pedals at the Ready – There’s a Greenway Coming Soon to Westport House! New Greenway Connector from Great Western Greenway to Westport Quay
Westport, July 2, 2015 – As a Smarter Travel demonstration town, Westport is all about reducing our preference for the car and opting to walk, cycle, skateboard, scoot or share vehicles. As part of this initiative, Mayo County Council and Westport House have partnered on a brand-new greenway that meanders through Westport House estate. When finished, the Westport House Greenway will link the 42km Great Western Greenway on the south side with beautiful Westport Quay and the Wild Atlantic Way to the north.
While the works are currently ongoing, they are nearing completion…and we will let you know as soon as it is complete! With that, we will encourage all day visitors, campers and locals alike to ditch the car and instead walk, cycle or scoot in to visit with us.
As you can probably tell, we are really excited about this fantastic new addition to the Westport House offering! However, we wanted to let you know that because of health and safety concerns, we have unfortunately had to close our Pitch & Putt course as a result. Further as part of the development, we have transformed the tennis courts at Westport House into much-needed new car parking facilities.
While work is still continuing, we wanted to let you know about this super new facility and we will be sure to keep you posted on its progress. And we hope that you’ll get on your bike or don your walking shoes to give it a go!
