“park in the heart of suburbia.”
Review of Ormeau Park

Ormeau Park
Ranked #60 of 229 things to do in Belfast
Attraction details
Reviewed August 13, 2014

The Ormeau Road is one of the busiest commuter roads in Belfast. It has lots of nice pubs, bars and shops, but as soon as you walk through the Victorian gates into the park the sounds of city life fade away. Ormeau Park is a nice park with mature trees and lawns, lovely to stroll through, and they seem to be leaving parts to form a more natural landscape. There is a lot of seating through the park and it's a real escape for a while. However, there are very few flowers in the park at the minute. I appreciate that planting flowers borders is intensive work and perhaps a bit old fashioned, but it would be nice to see more colour. There were no flowering shrubs and what flowers were there were nearly over even though it's the middle of summer. For this reason I have given it a lower score but the park is beautifully kept and I would recommend a visit here if you are in the vicinity. There is a road between the park and the river Lagan which is a bit of a shame, but I think it would be possible to walk along the river right back into town. I also noticed that disabled parking is allowed outside the main gates off the Ormeau Road.

Ormeau Park is a very attractive open space in South Belfast with clear views over the river Lagan, with very pleasant walks and plenty of sporting and play facilities available.

Not far from the city centre, on the banks of the Lagan, Ormeau (pronounced - Ormo) Park is a pleasant place for a stroll almost any time of day. Ormeau Park has been open to the public for over 100 years and is a lovely part of south east Belfast, between the Ravenhill Road and Ormeau Road.

Much prefer here to Botanic Gardens, lots of room to hang out, have a picnic, walk the dog etc.

Botanic Gardens feels a bit too busy most of the time.

I love Ormeau Park, the grounds are beautiful and are very well kept. I take my dog here frequently for a walk and she also enjoys it (especially the squirrels lol!) The children's play area to the side is great! Again, very well kept, clean and the equipment in good working order. I could easily spend most of the afternoon walking around here. Love it!
