Such a wonderful paved trail to walk, run or rent a bike and follow along. The pathway is flat and well travelled by families of all ages and lots of pets. Ducks and bird wildlife is fun to watch and listen to. Lock Keepers Inn is a wonderful destination for relaxing outside and grabbing a beverage! Very pretty!

A good spot to start a walk along the towpath is at the carpark at Drumbeg opposite St. Patricks church. This is a walk along the Lagan Navigation as it was known. In the past barges plied their way from Lough Neagh to Belfast through a variety of locks. Now a tranquil waterway home only to wildlife, it makes for... More

This was a special event organised by Lagan Valley Regional Park and hosted by the Park Ranger Dan and his very friendly crew. It was so much fun for the kids and the adults too. There were plenty of games to get the kids enjoying the forest and also teaching them useful life skills. They learned how to make twine... More

The best place to start is at the Lock Keepers Inn and from here you can walk downstream to Stranmillis Weir. The return trip will take about an hour, but to extend the walk you can take one of the many narrow paths into the Park. For the more energetic try going upstream past Shaw's Bridge and along the towpath... More

One of NIs treasures. Walk/run/cycle from Belfast - Lisburn (and beyond) with plenty of entrance/exit points, off-shoot parks, and an excellent cafe. Glorious. All free.

This is a great route for a walk, cycle or run along the Lagan Towpath. Its well maintained, gets a lot of people out exercising and generally feels safe. You can often see people canoeing in the river so there is always a hive of activity in this park. There are seats along the walk and also variations to the... More

Brill birthday party experience for a crowd of 8 year olds. Best party ever, according to the twenty odd kids who attended. Dan, the head ranger at Lagan Valley Regional Park, agreed readily to my request for a bushcraft party for my eldest's birthday party. The party was to include things like making rope from ivy, camouflage games, creating shelters... More

While in Lisburn recently, I wanted to go to the Island Arts Centre, so looked at the map, to find the quickest route, and thought there might be a shortcut through this park. But I wasn't sure, so asked in the very helpful Tourist Office, and the fella there confirmed it, and even showed me on Google Maps, where to... More
