Photography competition

To coincide with RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch we launched a Photography competition to encourage everyone who uses the Greenway to keep an eye out for the wealth of birds we have dotted along Belfast's wildlife corridor.  

We were overwhelmed by the responses and were delighted to see so many entries showcasing a fantastic array of wildlife along the Connswater Community Greenway. 

The judges met and after a long time deciding chose the 3 winners.

Piece Together 14th September 2017

On Thursday 14th September the Connswater Community Greenway welcomed people from all over East Belfast to C.S. Lewis Square for the official opening of the Greenway.

It was the highlight of a 10 day programme of events to celebrate the completion of construction works. Although the last section was opened in April we wanted to publicly acknowledge all those that made it possible and supported throughout the project.
