This was a favourite even though they didn't bring kids to take advantage of the good stuff they have here for the little ones. They loved the... More

I love this walk and walk it regularly. It's relaxing, well thought out and is great when the sun is shining. It's a lovely walk first thing in the morning or last thing at night when you can often catch a fantastic sunset over Belfast lough. The only downside is the amount of dog poo on the walk. Who are...

Pickie fun park is an excellent venue for parents with young children with a very good area with slides, swings. The pedalos and mini golf have to be paid for, unlike the play area but are still worth having a go on. Pickie fun park overlooks the Marina and is at the start of a very nice coastal walk round...

On holiday. This walk is stunning and as it is on Tarmac it is suitable for everyone. There has clearly been a lot of thought and money invested here. Fantastic views . My only criticism was there were several lots of dog poo on the path . I'm a dog owner myself and it disgusts me that people don't clean... More

A lovely walk along the coast from Pickie to Strictlands Glen will take about 20 mins and give you great views of Belfast Lough. It is hilly in a few places but all smooth tarmac so not too difficult. Watch out for cyclists though because they use it and there are a few blind bends where you can come close!

If you like a good walk that can take all day and choose a sunny and dry day this is the walk for you. Start at the Pickie end of Bangor and walk along the path towards Carnalea. You can walk to Helen's Bay and Grey Point Fort if you like or simply take a refreshment stop at Crawfordsburn Country... More

Loved the park... nothing negative to comment. It was simply amazing, beautiful and clean. Try visiting it during a sunny day to enjoy the fullest.

Lovely views over belfast lough, It is possible to walk all the way to Stricklands Glen, Crawfordsburn, Helens bay and beyond depending on the weather. Views change all the time depending on the weather and it is possible to see some beautiful sunsets and sunrises.
