“Beautiful woodland oasis.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

I've recently begun going for regular walks here and would highly recommend this park to anyone. There's miles of walking paths, which extend up into the National Trust. Wonderful scenery, lots of wildlife to keep an eye out for, and nice grassy hills to enjoy a picnic lunch on. The only fault I find is that all of the main gates are locked at 5 pm, so its not open for those of us who prefer evening hikes.

“A must to see and go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Colin geln forest park is a beatiful walk that leaves you feeling refresehd and energised from the stunning scenery to the beutiful flowing river that accompanies you on the most part of your walk and there are plenty of places were you can go right down to the rivers edge,a must for dog walkers
I have only recently started using Colin Glen Forest to walk my dogs and I wonder what took me so long the people you meet are friendly right down to the younger adults and kids.
Even on a wet day its brilliant.
The best Park in Belfastby Far.
