Reenagross Woodland Park
Welcome to Reenagross or Rinn na gCros, Irish for the Headland of the Crosses or the Muddy Point.
The park is a wooded peninsula set within the beautiful landscape of Kenmare Bay. It was originally developed as a private park by the first Marquis of Lansdowne (1739-1803). An 18th century map of the Lansdowne Estate shows Reenagross as it was drawn by John Powell in 1764. It was an open peninsula withvery few trees. By the mid-19th century however a woodland, boat house and pier were developed. Reenagross as we see it today had taken shape.
The Reenagross Woodland Park Brochure outlines over 3km of walking trails in Reenagross park, along with the diverse range of habitats that are home to a wide variety of plants and animals, archaeological features and places of interest.
