In conjunction with Coillte we have developed a 200 acre amenity area within 1 mile of Rathangan village.
It is a mixed hardwood conifer forest with very diverse flora and fauna. The project won the Tidy Towns national award for wildlife conservation in 2001.
There are about 10 km of signposted walks in the wood and these give access to a wide variety of ecosystems.
In Spring/early Summer these woods are carpeted with bluebells and wild garlic. It is one of the few yet to be discovered areas of outstanding natural beauty in County Kildare.
It has good car parks entrance is free and it is readily accessible for all.
