Amazing Grace Park
The Amazing Grace Park was opened in 2014 and is on land beside the tourist information building on Railway Road, just as you enter the town from the south.
It is a small tranquil park with seats and picnic tables scattered throughout. There is a lovely central water feature in the middle of the park, which is home to some ducks. At the entrance, you will find a statue of the author of ‘amazing grace’ John Newton (1725–1807).
There is a little path which follows the Owenkillew river as it joins Lough Swilly, in the end, there are a couple of seats with spectacular views over the lough.
In the park, there are some information boards which tell the story of John Newton and more of these can be found on the amazing grace walk, which starts from the park and goes along the shorefront to the Amazing Grace Viewing Platform.
