We really enjoyed a stroll around the park before the Ulster museum next door. It's a shame the tropical ravineis closed for repair until next year.

An array of colourful flowers, little shrubs, the children running around, families out with children and like me, their grandchildren, Ulster Museum ( which is inside Botanic Gardens ) and beside Queens University are magnificent to visit. my grandchildren and I have spotted little red and...

Lovely grounds with beautiful Victorian greenhouse to explore. Very nicely placed beside the Ulster Museum which is another Belfast gem.

But the two main points are the Tropical Ravine which contains a selection of tropical plants and a small pond for water based plants. A large curved glasshouse with plants ranging from cool up to...

It is the Belfast park for me and my family. We love it - lots of space to have a stroll or a scooter ride, good foliage to enjoy during the warmer months, a decent cafe in the new QUB building and in the Ulster Museum. The latter is worth visiting while in the park to make more of complete... More
