Lough Key Forest Park
Lough Key Forest Park encompasses the most scenic and important part of the Rockingham Estate, a significant 18th century land holding near Carrick-on-Shannon in the Republic of Ireland.
In 2003, Moylurg Rockingham invited design teams to submit concept proposals for the £5m redevelopment of the Forest Park, with the aim to provide a family focused facility to ast as a catalyst for future local development.
A proposal from Ferguson McIlveen (recently incorporated into Scott Wilson) was accepted, which included a visitors centre, a maze, adventure house and an elevated Tree Top Walk.
Woodburn successfully tendered a contract to construct the steelwork for the walkways, and also erect a 36m tall lift tower for access to a high viewing platform.
The walkway was completed in September 2006 and the overall development was due to open to the public late in 2007.
