We met with other home educating  families for a walk and picnic at Gortin Glen Forest Park.

The park has a number of different routes that you can choose from, each with a different distance and difficulty level. 

We chose to walk the River Walk which turned out to be quite steep in places and included bridges and stairs to cross the River.

We had a great time eating blackberries and finding pinecones that were eaten by squirrels. (Some of us had even been lucky enough to see some red squirrels when driving into the car park.)

After our walk we went for a picnic at the car park while the kids played.

It definitely is a place we would all like to go to again.

Currently parking is free but during the summer season it would cost £4 to park a car there.

There are public toilets which are open all year round.
