The region is lucky to have many great tourist attractions with Lough Key Forest Park being an important one. This forest park is situated on the outskirts of Boyle on the main Sligo/Dublin road and covers a vast area which is predominantly covered by forest and woodland with both broadleaf and conifer trees growing within the park. Zipit forest adventure opened its first and indeed Ireland's first aerial trail adventure in April 2011.

Lough Key offers fun for all the family and includes the adventure play kingdom- a purpose built outdoor children's play area, Bodacious Berg- a Swedish concept of puzzle rooms through which you must progress using different skills, and the Lough Key Experience - a self guided audio tour through the original tunnels to the top of the Moylurg viewing tower and over the tree canopy walk.

Longford has its own park in the Mall Longford which is a beautifully landscaped area of parkland on the banks of the River Camlin, situated in the heart of Longford town. It is the home to Longford Sports and Leisure Complex which boasts a swimming pool, outdoor all weather soccer, basketball and outdoor exercising equipment, surrounded by trees and flowers gardens with the well stocked river running through it. This sports complex has been the long term venue of the very successful IPA National Finals of the 5 - a - side soccer competition each year. The Mall complex is a haven of tranquillity, a great retreat from the hustle and bustle of town life.
