Waterford Greenway Proves Big Hit In Its First Year

Nearly 250,000 people have used the new Waterford Greenway since its launch earlier this year.

According to a new survey, as reported by the Irish Independent, some 247,545 have used it since March, with 105,639 on foot and 141,906 on bikes.

The survey showed that 94% of respondents said their overall perception of the Greenway was excellent or good, while 68% said it was the main reason they had travelled to Waterford.

Meanwhile, 70% said they liked the scenery and nature along the route, while 51% enjoyed being away from traffic.

The greenway spans 46km and is Ireland's longest off-road cycling and walking trail.
