For those keen to learn how to fly fish angling, instructions are available by making a booking at Dungannon Park reception – 028 8772 8690, all equipment is supplied.

Dungannon Park Treasure Trail

Treasure TrailDungannon Park Treasure Trail is a fun and unique way to enjoy the outdoors and explore the beautiful surroundings of Dungannon Park. It is a great way to spend quality time together on a family walk, or a fun day out with friends. The treasure trail is a mystery treasure hunt based on a fictional “local Fisherman” who is rumoured to have recovered an ancient vault that contained instructions on how to find treasure somewhere in Dungannon Park. Visitors to the Park are invited to search for the “treasure” by finding and solving clues. When successfully completed there is an opportunity to enter into a competition online to win a prize.

For people who have a keen sense of adventure and a desire to explore then here is the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of treasure seekers on the Dungannon Park Treasure Trail.
