I visited the Castle Gardens with my family and was really happy with how neat and tidy everything was. There are plenty of things to see and nice wide paths for bikes. There is also a cafe in case you get hungry.

Great place to go for a relaxing walk. The flowers are nice to look at whilst walking. You can have a nice picnic and relax. You can get parked near by. There is grass for people to play footy on.

Guided tours by the council employees are very interesting and informative. Well worth doing on a visit to Lisburn. A hidden gem in the city of Lisburn.
