Castlewellan Lake

The largest stretch of water in the Forest Park is Castlewellan Lake, nearly one mile in length and covering about 40Ha. The original lake was much smaller but the construction of a dam to regulate the outflow of water and provide a reserve supply for the mill pond (also known as the Town Dam) raised the level and increased the area of the lake to its present size. It is fed by a number of small streams running off surrounding hills. Today the lake is well utilised by anglers and outdoor pursuit centres and is an Area of Special Scientific Interest. It is possible walk around the lake via a well kept path, the total length of which is probably about three miles. The park has a varied selection of mature broad leaf and coniferous trees.

Have a great day.
