Being near the shoreline, the weather can change quickly. Make sure you've got your coat! Anyway, it's a beautiful location and a great place for a walk with the dog along the shores. The park is very nice and has an excellent cafe with indoor...More

This is just the perfect place for families to have a day out, sun, sand and plenty of grass and tables for picnics and BBQs. I used to walk my dog here round the coast almost everyday and it's just a beautiful place to relax...More

Visited the park for the first time today. Shocking really since I've lived in Belfast for 7 years! Beautiful scenery and not too strenuous. Great for dogs and families.

This was such a lovely visit for a glimpse of scenery, community and peacefulness. Ideal for walking, shell collecting, people watching, dog swimming, examples of flora and fauna, running in the sea side openness and picnicking. Stiff, chilling winds so warm clothes and layering are...More

Sundays are great here. All sorts of people enjoying the sunshine. Open areas for kids, wooded walks, café with tasty menu. All this and beach!

Crawfordsburn country park, located on the North County Down coast, has spectacular views across the Belfast Lough and further in to County Antrim. The park is a great place to take a stroll and enjoy the fresh sea air, or to enjoy a picnic. If...More
