Barna Greenway

Galway Urban Greenway Alliance is calling on Galway City Council to complete their own advanced plans on the Bearna Greenway and link it through Galways’ Westend to Dangan.

A 21st century walking and cycling path through the heart of the City linking the Salthill promenade onto Bearna was postponed in 2016 even though it had got to an advanced planning stage. When completed, it could see hundreds of thousands of families, children, elderly people and tourists alike using it each year.

Dublin, Limerick, Waterford, Dungarvan and Westport all have Urban Greenways which are used by the community to walk and cycle to School, work, shops, cafes and cultural events.

Galway is being left behind with a bizarre situation where on either end of the prom you are encouraged to cycle (the mixed use paths on Southpark and in front of the golf course), whilst on the promenade itself it is illegal to cycle. Galway is a young and vibrant City and many parents are looking for somewhere to cycle with their children in a safe and segregated environment.

People from Bearna, Knocknacarra, Salthill and all Galwegians are crying out for safe cycling infrastructure along the coast. The route itself would be a world class Greenway, following the footsteps of the Mayo and Waterford Greenways.

Get behind this, sign and spread the word!
