“Always a surprise when I go there”
Review of Castle Park

Castle Park
Ranked #13 of 39 things to do in Bangor
Attraction details
Reviewed June 20, 2013

I dont go here much and when I do I wonder why. Its just outside of town (and not far from my front door) and its lovely, nice and peaceful and always magpies and squirells about the place. If oyu just take once of the short paths I'm amazed at how differnt types of scrub/trees there are. Its surprising how quiet it is considering its surrounded by busy roads but I supose the trees and the gradient from the mian road buffers it out.

As well as the park you have the Walled garden and the Museum to drop into if you so wish - I've not been to either but I've heard good things. So if you feel like getting away from it but dont fancy going far out of town this is the place.

Beautiful park with excellent walks, nature trail and a great variety of flora and fauna. Bangor Castle Town Hall is situated in the Park also Heritage Centre which boasts a little museum and
excellent restaurant and gift shop.

Lovely park to have a dander about, what can I say, it's a park. O apparently I'm meant to say more but there isn't much more to say, sorry:(

A lovely place for a walk without having to drive into the countryside. The Walled Garden is well worth a visit and there is the Heritage Centre and cafe to head to for refreshment.

Love taking my dog here during the day, very scenic and I love the wildlife, squirrels etc. The paths are well made and although the dog ends up covered in mud, I am relatively unscathed!!
