You could tell straight away that this park was well cared for, and deserving of the Green Flag award it received. The park would benefit from more event centered days to make use of its great space - but it was great to see BBQ benches in place that a local had told me was a recent installment. One criticism...

My local park within walking distance off the city centre. Has 2 childrens play area at opposite ends of the park and basketball courts freely available. One end of the park has outdoor bodyweight exercise equipment along the pathway. One let down it that everyone in the area seems to walk their dogs here, about 95% off the lead even... More

Researched the nearest parkrun to our hotel and found this little gem. The park itself was lovely and clean and plenty of room to everyone. Lots to do for adults and kids. Would be great for a summers day picnic. Highly recommended.

Lovely park, huge, for family walks, and running if you're that way inclined. Beautiful trees and friendly folk.

Decided to walk around this rather large park and was very disappointed. Gone are the flower beds, lovely band stand, cricket pitch and all that reminded me of my childhood here. Just a dull drab waste of space really. Hundreds of trees planted and virtually turned into a forest rather than a park. Very eerie and not the sort of... More

Having grown up in this area of Belfast I have so many happy childhood memories of Ormeau Park. It is a lovely place to go for walks or spending some quiet reflecting time just enjoying the greenery, flowers and wildlife. I remember my father telling me that it was the first public park to be opened in Belfast. This is... More

It is a public park, not a very big one at that - there is a band stand, a few paths, often covered in dog crap and there is public toilets and a lot of cyclists. Belfast cyclists particularly in public parks are arrogant, so there is no hope of a peaceful and relaxing walk in the open air. It... More

We walked through the park a couple of times to get to the university. It was a nice walk besides a golf course, but nothing special.
