Redburn Country Park has several starting points. One is at Knocknagoney where you can park in the layby. Another is from the Old Holywood Road opposite the gates of Palace Barracks, where you can park in the residential estate of Firmount Crescent. Then you have the option of parking at Redburn Community Centre at the top of Jacksons Road or my personal choice, park at Redburn Cemetary and start off at the old school playing fields.
The beauty of Redburn Country Park is that it is always quiet and peaceful with just the click of a golfball as you pass Holywood Golf Course. The walk can be as easy or as strenuous as you choose for both walkers and joggers alike, with a selection of well maintained paths leading to the higher ground or the lower ground. The high ground delivers fantastic views over Belfast Lough and the Docks area of Belfast. In Autumn the pathways are leafy and in summer there is plenty of shade under the trees. There is some interesting History behind the park land with the old Dunvilles House at it's centre, sadly no longer standing. There are just some rusty iron railings as a memory of it's grandeur.
If you're visiting Holywood and you enjoy an hour or two's walk with or without dog's , make Redburn Country Park a must as a pleasant way to spend a morning or afternoon.
