Castle Archdale Country Park has its own dedicated ‘Insect Garden’. The plants and flowers have been specially chosen to encourage insects and butterflies to visit.

What will you see? 

World War II Flying Boat Base

At one time, Castle Archdale Country Park was in the front line of the Battle of the Atlantic. This base helped keep the Atlantic free of U-boats. The Heritage Trail was devised by the Fermanagh Flying Boat Association to give a brief idea of the extent of the park during the Second World War.

Shetland Dock

Originally intended for the servicing of Shetland Flying Boats, this dock built in 1945 is believed to be the only one of its type surviving in the world.

Burma Road

This roadway affectionately named the ‘Burma Road’ was cut through dense forest and gave access to isolated ammunition and pyro stores.
