Walking Tour of Carlow Town
The development of 127 acres at Oak Park provides a wonderful woodlands experience for the general public and specifically for children. The park is a mature mixed species woodlland with a predominance of beech, ash, scots pine, larch, ash and sycamore. Colour coded walkways extend over 4 kilometres and include Butlers Wood Loop (700 metres), Lake Path (800 metres), Fox Covert Track (1100 metres) and Sally Island Trail (1700 metres). The lakes and their surrounds provide a habitat for swans and ducks, while the islands shelter many wild and game birds. Informal leisure areas, picnic sites, parking for 100 cars and designated toilet facilities are all provided at the park.
