A very beautiful place to visit and take a walk - rolling hills, beautiful trees. A place of reflection. Great place for taking pictures.

We were spending the day in Bangor and on the advice of the lady in the travel agent we headed to the castle park. Being there for only a short time it was hard to explore it fully but we did have a pleasant walk through the gardens into the walled garden where several families were having picnics by the water feature. We felt the on site cafe was expensive enough for just a sambo and so gave it a miss and went elsewhere. We also took in a visit to the history museum which was interesting enough as was a visit to Bangor Cathedral and the end of the gardens. I imagine if you lived locally you would use this park lots, as was evident with the number of dog walkers we saw.
Was it a highlight of our holiday?- well not really but we would recommend it if you happen to be in Bangor but don't think it would be worth an excursion just to visit it alone.

It's still a lovely place, but has become muddy and run down....I love the old trees etc but it seems as if no one cares!

Lovely walks and well worth a visit if in Bangor, when there plenty to see and do - nothing to dislike about it especially if you get a good day.

I walk through Castle park every day to get to the train. Its beautiful and very varied. The walled garden is at the back and definitely worth a visit. i just wish they would sell some plants, i.e. vegetables, flower plants to the public. The Museum is very inetersting although small and has lovely links to China. Grand wee cafe there too.
In the morning the squirrels are scampering about as are the birls. very relaxing
