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.
