AboutThe Bann Boulevard is the perfect place for a short walk or as a starting point for a much longer linear walk. The wide tarmac surface makes the path suitable for all users. The towpath is a shared use path and can be busy at times, however, cyclists should give way to pedestrians.
A convenient car park is located behind The Meadows Shopping Centre delivery area (off Meadow Lane) at the rear of the shopping centre, beside Portadown Boat Club. From the car park, looking at the river, walk to your right along the tarmac path until you reach the Point of Whitecoat Bridge. At this point you can cross the bridge and continue along the towpath to Knock Bridge and beyond or return along the same path back to the car park.
