We went for a picnic here and we all loved it. A short drive out of Belfast with vast open green. Kids loved running around. Very relaxing

Ok if you have a dog or want to fly a kite . Quite popular with locals though. Parts of the tow path are beautiful but its mostly just grassland

This is a nice place to park the car and go for a long walk around the gardens and arboretum, or down to the Lagan. Just beware that the path to the river is quite steep and must be attempted in reverse when returning to the car. There is a café where you can get a coffee or a more... More

Visited here today. Sun was shining and the park looked beautiful with spring flowers everywhere. There are a number of walks you can take, most with great vistas. Then have lunch.! We had a very enjoyable and tasty lunch. You could come for afternoon tea, which several tables near us were having and that looked very good too.

It is a lovely walk and the gardens are fabulous in a lovely sunny day. There is a lovely cafe in the grounds were you can sit and watch the local wildlife.
