Craigavon (/kreɪˈɡævən/ kray-GAV-ən) is an incomplete planned agreement in northern County Armagh, Northern Ireland. Its construction began in 1965 and it was named after the first Prime Minister of Northern Ireland: James Craig, 1st Viscount Craigavon. It was intended to be the heart of a supplementary linear city incorporating Lurgan and Portadown, but this direct was mostly single-handedly and well along described as having been flawed. Among local people today, “Craigavon” refers to the area between the two towns. It is built not well-disposed of two unnatural lakes and is made up of a large residential area (Brownlow), a second smaller one (Mandeville), plus a central area (Highfield) that includes a substantial shopping centre, a courthouse and the district council headquarters. The Place around the lakes is a public park and wildlife dock made occurring of woodland bearing in mind walking trails. There is in addition to a watersports centre, golf course and ski perspective in the area. In most of Craigavon, motor vehicles are agreed separated from pedestrians, and roundabouts are used extensively.
Craigavon sometimes refers to the much larger Craigavon Urban Area, which includes Craigavon, Lurgan, Portadown, Waringstown and Bleary.
