Connswater Community Greenway has scooped three major awards at two high profile ceremonies held in London, reaffirming its status as a ‘Living Landmark.’  The awards from The Academy of Urbanism and Landscape Institute recognised the tremendous work the project has achieved in connecting people, place and nature in a revitalised urban space as well encouraging civic pride and community engagement.
