A lovely place for a walk or the energetic run. With several points to sit and just take in the scenery. There is access to the shoreline in place. Good for pond dipping

From the Pickie Fun Park in Bangor find the coastal path. It is a great walk in all weathers on a good path which runs all the way to Holywood. Approximately 16 Kms. It is suitable for walkers of all abilities.
