On the outskirts of Douglas, a lovely glen with waterfall but if you go in the evening it is illuminated. Our youngest family member (6 yr old) was enthralled as were we all. It has quite number of steps but very safe underfoot as all...More

This pretty little glen has lots of waterfalls gently rolling down to Summer Hill. Illuminations and fairies guide you through - and all this is free of charge. Highly recommend for all ages but not suitable of the disabled. I'm so glad we were told...More

Just off the main promenade near the tram station this little Glen is a lovely spot. Nice walk up through the wood along the stream. Illuminated at various times of the year.

Close to Douglas promenade, just walk up the Summerhill near the Electric Railway and then go through the brick archway. A nice path to wander and sit and enjoy the birds and plants. No illuminations until August.

The glen is beautiful, however it is too dark and there are a lot of tree stems to fall over. Taking children and dogs is not good.

This is a very pretty glen which is illuminated with all sorts of things. A lot of steps and steep in places, so not ideal for people with walking difficulties, but if you can manage it, do it. It’s a real fairy glen

My brother-in-law, sister and their daughter (7) walked through Summerhill Glen and loved every minute of it. There were fairy houses, mommy ducks with ducklings, the waterfall that changed colours, the swans and especially the peacock and all the lights. There were also dinosaurs which...More

As far a I am aware they are. There is no-one checking at either end of the glen and we have certainly seen people walking their dogs. Hope that helps and that you enjoy it!
