When the suns out in Belfast it's a great place to take children. Good park facilities and ample places to take a stroll. My kids love playing in the trees as it's easy for them to climb or play hide and seek. Only drawback is there isn't a great deal of parking space and no toilet facilities unless you are... More

There's something for everyone on a park trip here. Car parking is good, there's an entrance at either end with a car park and a big field they use for overspill when there's something on. The Lisburn / Drumbeg side car park has toilets and a fairly average cafe. There's also foot access from the Lagan tow path. The children's... More

This is a beautiful place to come for a walk or to admire the many different types of roses on display. Bring a picnic and make a day of it!

During a trip in 2005 my brother and I came upon this park quite by accident. We decided to walk the grounds and we are so glad that we did. The rose gardens were stunning and made for some beautiful photo ops.

Great walk and play area. Shame people allow dogs in the play area, even though there are signs up forbidding it.

Good for walking an rose observation during blossom season. Playground is perfect addition for kids to run and play. Japanese garden has it character despite that it was not maintain properly for years.?Do not expect anything more than relaxed walk. The trail around the park takes 1.5 miles, enough for 30 minutes walk. Then you can have a tea or... More
