    Great hike - partially covered and partially open sky. Doable in a couple hours, and super convenient to get to from Downtown Belfast.

    Lovely autumnal sunhine walk thorugh the Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon park this weekend. Large parkland in South Belfast with plenty of woodland and garden trails and footpaths, as well as playparks, picnic areas, flower and herb gardens and the impressive but unfortunately abandoned Wilmont House in the grounds. Just a shame that no one could purchase and look after this impressive Victorian Country House.

    Very pleasant park to get away from centre of Belfast. Close to shops and river front. Wooded area. Playground and band stand.

    Pretty park, with wooded areas, meadows, lots of waterfowl, plants, and if you are lucky you will get to see a plane takeoff or land at the Belfast City Airport :)
    Worth the ride to East Belfast

    This forest park is amazing to talk through any time of year. With several hidden entrances, from the Lagan towpath via Shaw's Bridge and the Lockkeeper's Cottage, to the Galwally Avenue entrance, as well as the official entrance via the carpark in the Belvoir estate, there are many ways to get into this urban oasis of tranquility and nature.

    Just away from the carpark, you'll find the remains of a 12th century Norman motte, as well as an the site of an ancient village. The variety of tree species is also incredible, as a large portion of the park was planted as an arboretum by the Dungannons and Batesons, and this area includes some specimens of sequoia redwood and cedar. As well as this, there is a private Medieval graveyard with plots dating back to the 14th century.

    A short walk down the towpath to the Clement Wilson Park will bring you to Shaw's Bridge, built to allow Cromwell's gunners to cross the Lagan, and the remains of an ancient Irish ringfort.

    Belvoir Park Forest - a beautiful, peaceful place steeped in a thousand years of history.

    Lagan Valley Park in Belfast is a very nice place to visit in south Belfast with its winding wood covered pathways, historical buildings, great car parking facilities, sports facilities, beautiful waterways and the historical phenomen of the Giant's Ring. Depending on the route you take and where you park your car you could spend 2-3 hours there easily and if you are a keen cyclist or very keen runner/walker you can take it all the way to Lisburn or into Belfast City Centre, but it will take up your day. If anything you should just visit the Giant's Ring just to say you've seen it.

    A great walk in the heart of Castlereagh. Fairly challenging at parts but the view from the top is worth the walk! Can get a bit muddy after rain so wear good shoes

    If you are a young teen looking for a fun, cheap Saturday night out lagan meadows is a lovely spot for the local youth to gather.
    I recently attended with a group of close buddy’s and had an excellent evening. The venue is byb and there is a larger outside field and a more intimate area in the bushes. I’ve since been to the lagan meadows quite a few times and have enjoyed it thoroughly

    I've used this park all my life. It was beautiful in the 50's and it still is. Happily the troubles didn't seem to affect it. It's well looked after and used a great deal by local people, dog walkers, mothers with their prams, young families having picnics and having fun on one of the many grassy areas, walking groups and school children. It has a great play area for kids, lovely flowerbeds, a remembrance garden and many beautiful trees. A wonderful place to visit.

    Pretty park for a short walk, on the way between central Belfast to the Zoo, Cave hill park, or a bit north from the Gaol.
    Worth a stop to see the pretty waterfowl (esp swans)

    A regeneration protect that still needs a little more work. A cafe, community centre and open area is all good. Just needs an area for sports.

    Parked in the Car Park off the road to the Hospital and enjoyed a walk through a landscaped area with flowers and shrubs, and then walked round a football pitch. Although beside a busy Motorway Musgrave Park is good for a walk in the open or through the trees and shrubs.

    Snowy day but Greenville Park was fully accessible and good for a walk although some of the facilities, Play Park and Outdoor Gym were "snowed off"
    Children were tobogganing down the hills in the Park and there were other walkers, some with dogs, enjoying the Park.
