Great park with lots of different walks, there is a rose garden, Japanese garden, play park, walks through woodland and walks along the Lagan towpath and Lagan meadows. There is something for everyone.

These long established gardens are for all ages and abilities with several carparks. The rose gardens are world renowned. The Japanese sunken garden is well worth a visit.

Used to live in one of the gate houses of this beautiful park, I'm sure it was much nicer when sir Thomas was in charge but still well worth a visit for a walk or jog. Rose week can be very busy and family oriented. Will miss the park very much.

Lovely place to dander around, well kept gardens. Its particularly nice July/August when the roses are all out which consume most of the grounds.

We tend to head out on a Sunday for a dander / cycle with the kids. Lovely walks, excellent kids play area and a decent coffee shop. Certain times of the year are better that others because of the rose gardens but to be honest it's a nice place for a quite walk in the fresh air.
