The Owenashad River Walk is located just a short stroll from Lismore Town Centre. This has been a traditional walk used by the people of Lismore for many generations and has recently been refurbished by the Local Tidy Town’s Committee. Most of this work was carried out at the start of the walk at an area known locally as the Strand and included planting of an area with a mixture of meadow grasses and wildflower seeds, erecting bird and bat boxes, planting native hazel trees, creation of log and stone heaps, conservation of a 19th century flood wall and the eradication of invasive species such as Japanese Knotweed, Rhododendron and Winter Heliotrope. This is a great walk to experience native plant species for example, Lismore blue anemone, wild garlic, cow parsley, pignut, wood speedwell, wood anemone, lords and ladies, great woodrush, toothwort and 4 species of fern.
