Mote Park, the seat of the Crofton Family from the 16th century up until the 1940s is a gateway to heritage, history, flora, fauna and the environment. Located in the heart of County Roscommon, it is an ideal venue for outdoor activities for children and people of all ages.
Mote Park is now widely known for its forests, an important amenity for Roscommon town and surrounding areas. These forests total 650 acres and provide habitats for many species of wildlife, both common and rare. The forests add greatly to the unique character of the area and are providing opportunities for many forms of outdoor pursuits including hiking, walking and animal bird-watching.
