One of the Forest Park‘s key attractions, the Peace Maze, is one of the world’s largest permanent hedge mazes, representing the path to a peaceful future for Northern Ireland. Planted in 2000 with community involvement, it is maturing quickly and visitors attempt to solve their way to the peace bell in the centre of the maze. 

A video recorded from the wheelchair:

Access available for people with limited mobility on scooter. Manual wheelchairs – the total distance including the Peace Maze and Gardens is around 6 miles and would recommend a challenge to any pushers at any one visit.


The track around the lake is about 4km long with some small ups and downs and it is made from hard gravel.

I personally saw three electric-powered wheelchair users spinning around the lake.


Some usefull information:
– carpark enterance fee (per car)
