Historic Belfast wood to show off new look with unmissable spring event

Saturday 29 April 2017

Throne Wood, Belfast

Families and nature lovers are invited to put a spring in their step at the Woodland Trust’s Throne Wood in north Belfast.

Saturday 29 April, from 11am to 4pm, sees an afternoon brimming with guided walks; tales; and mini–beast hunts.

The centuries–old wood, at the foot of Cave Hill, can’t wait to show off its new look, made possible thanks to funding of almost £48,000 from the Alpha Programme, administered by Groundwork Northern Ireland. 

The welcoming facelift includes improved pathways and entrances, while a new dipping platform allows nature detectives to take a closer look at the revamped pond and its inhabitants. 

A dazzling metal sculpture in the form of a heron takes pride of place beside the pond. This crafty creation is the handiwork of Kevin Killen, with input from children at next door’s Hazelwood Integrated Primary School who use the wood as an outdoor classroom.
