Record Visitor Numbers for Mountlucas Amenity in 2020
Mountlucas Wind Farm is delighted to report it has recorded over 45,000 visits to its walkway/cycleway amenity facility in 2020, an increase of 25% on 2019.
Overall, in excess of 180,000 visits have been made to our amenity facilities since the first 7kms section of our track was opened to the public in 2016.
The full 10kms of multi-use track was completed in 2018 through around the wind farm, with outdoor exercise equipment installed along the route. March 2020 saw the biggest increase in visitor numbers - up 78% on the same month in 2019.
“People have really embraced the wind farm and the walkways this year. The trails through our peatland allow people to exercise and enjoy nature in a place with plenty of space, no traffic and lots of plants, birds and animals to see. People have found it a great resource during the difficult times of 2020 and one woman told me she would have been lost without it”.
