The Minister also confirmed that it is continuing to work to maximise the hours that it will be able to keep the facilities open so visitors can enjoy spending maximum time outdoors over the holiday season.
Minister Durkan said “Our country parks are enjoyed by tens of thousands of people every year. They provide stunning views, interesting wildlife and good exercise for walkers. I am aware though of much speculation that they may need to close due to the tough financial situation facing my department. I can re-assure that, in spite of the very difficult financial situation, the parks will be open during all holiday periods this year.
“I can also assure people that precise opening times will be published on the Discover Northern Ireland website in advance.
“I would encourage people to enjoy the splendour and the walks that our parks offer during the holiday periods.”
