The Athlumney Riverside Trail offers a unique unspoilt experience but you'll need wet weather shoes.
Accessed either from Kilcarn Bridge, through the fence line behind the Council office off Bothar Sion (with care) or via one of many paths from the fields of the IDA.

Also note that fields are farmed for grass so please be respectful.
Blackwater Park in North Navan offers an all weather circular path, lots of open spaces and it's both dog and cycle friendly.

Johnstown Peoples Park doesn't have the facilities but offers a large safe open green for families to enjoy.
Please note that Dalgan Park is currently CLOSED to the public due to the need to protect their elderly residents.
Map our Trees
The Autumn leaves are gathering on the ground but from what type of trees are they falling from?
If you're going out for a walk and looking for something more to do then consider identifying the trees you pass and record them in Johnstown Tidy Towns Tree Survey.
With less traffic on the road it's the perfect opportunity to see the neighbourhood on your bike BUT be sure to have lights and Hi Vis on these dark evenings.
Navan Cycling Initiative voluntary group has created a Map of all the known cycle paths within the Navan Neighbourhood.
Since March volunteers have delivered over 600 food hampers to local families in need.
Please buy and then donate essential supplies to ensure this service can meet the demand over the winter months.
Get involved by contacting Johnstown Tidy Towns Community Support Group.
