Community, What's On
With the Easter holidays just around the corner, NI Water is encouraging customers to take a trip to the Silent Valley Mountain Park in Kilkeel. The park, which is just over an hour drive from Belfast, offers true peace and tranquillity whilst housing the most picturesque scenery in Northern Ireland. NI Water’s Celine Rodgers spoke to Newry Times, “Silent Valley is home to the biggest reservoir in Northern Ireland holding over 13,000 million litres of water and stretches for 2½ miles. “It supplies water to most of the homes in County Down and some parts of Belfast. The park also has lots of nature trails on offer and plenty of mountain walks for the more adventurous. “The duck pond and play park will keep the children entertained while the rest of the family enjoy a picnic and take in the breathtaking views of the reservoir and the Mourne Mountains. She added, “There is also some history waiting to be discovered like ‘watertown’ in the visitors Centre where you will find information on all those who built the dam and how they lived. Visitors can learn all about the town and how it was the first street in Ireland to have electric street lighting.” So, why not pack up the car, the family and a picnic, and head down to Kilkeel this Easter for a day out at the Silent Valley.
