Ormeau Park is the oldest municipal park in Belfast, officially opening to the public in 1871. It is still one of the largest parks in Belfast and offers a great mix of horticulture, woodland, flower displays and wildlife. The park is also a popular venue for sport, with a range of facilities, including bowling greens and pavilions, tennis courts and soccer pitches, located with Ormeau Park Playing Fields. A number of events are held in the park each year, including concerts and band performances. Park features include eco trails and orienteering courses, horticultural displays, a children’s playground, seasonal bedding and specimen trees. Ormeau Park playing fields contain soccer pitches, two bowling greens, basketball and netball courts and tennis courts.
The walking route explores the historic parkland overlooking the River Lagan.
