Lurgan Park & Brownlow House
Lurgan Park is the second largest public park in Ireland, the biggest being Phoenix Park in Dublin. The beautifully landscaped parkland surrounds a 59-acre hand-dug lake with well-maintained paths which provide excellent walking and running ground. Brownlow House sits on the edge of the park and was built in the Elizabethan style in 1836 to the design by Scottish architect William Henry Playfair. It is reputed to have 365 rooms and was built for Charles Brownlow.
