Belfast City – Hauler’s Way
Image by infomatique
Following years of neglect and decline Belfast’s waterfront has been transformed, becoming a focus for business, leisure and cultural activities and a place of opportunity for all. Laganside Corporation (1989 – 2007) received international recognition as a regeneration agency for its achievement in successfully turning the vision of the Laganside area as an exciting place to live, work and play into a reality. This success is reflected in the ongoing momentum for development with the waterfront becoming an integral part of Belfast’s city centre.
Over 4km of riverside pathways exist within Laganside, allowing easy access from the heart of the city to the wide-open spaces of Lagan Valley Regional Park. These pathways form part of the Sustrans National Millennium Cycle Network, a new map of which is available from the Lagan Lookout Visitor Centre, and have been used for a variety of events including Laganside’s 10k race, cycle fun days, story telling and mural painting.
