This is my nearest park. With a 7 year old who has been coming since age 2, it's a place of dreams. The Faraway Tree is located through the back of the kids park. Head right and you will find it. - a magical space. Head straight on from here & you'll see the pretty fountain and the walled garden nearby. There are 2 car parks. A handy café is located at the 2nd entrance (heading out of town). Plenty of space, paths, gazebos and roses. A lovely place to picnic, coffee, run, walk, cycle or just sit. The riverside walk can be accessed from the lower car park. Lisburn one way, Stranmillis & Belfast, the other. Don't drive past, pull in.

Why do so many dog owners allow their pets to crap all over the place? My friend's toddler was beside us on the grass and rolled into dog muck. Yuck!

This is a lovely place! Although we didn't really get a good look around, due to heavy rain, very impressed with the general demeanour! Nice coffee shop, too, at the Stables!

Perfect for dogs and kids. Gardens are stunning but on a wet day bring your wellies!! Fabulous oriental pond really relaxing and a lot of fun. The kids play park is extensive and is sutuble for kids of most ages. A must see during rose week in the summer.
