Let our smiling faces reintroduce you to great outdoor playgrounds that hide in plain sight across the Ballyhoura region. Move more and live more, with green space activities for both young and old. 

We are currently advertising activities being held at the Griston Bog Nature Reserve and Outdoor Classroom in Ballylanders, Co. Limerick.

Griston Bog

Ballylanders wildlife bog is situated at Griston Bog on the west side of the village. It is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna, bees and insects and different types of water life, some of which are now in danger of extinction in many parts of the world.

Facilities include:

  • Wheel chair access to all facilities
