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.

Lovely easy walk by the marina and Pickie. Good flat surface makes it suitable for all ages and abilities and for push chairs etc. plenty of seats if you need a rest or want to enjoy the view. Must get out for a walk today!

Suitable for prams, wheelchairs, joggers, and birdwatchers. This coastal path goes gently up and down. If it's windy, it'll blow your head off. If it's calm you might just not stopping walking till you reach Belfast. Cycling at the weekend isn't great as you'll have to go very slowly on account of the walkers but at other times great. Brilliant... More
