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.

Well, read somewhere that this isn't the safest Place in town and lots have occured there, but myself I felt very safe running through the park several mornings. The area is quite big and there's lots of potential to make it even better than it's now. There are several paths going around the park and it's worth trying out different... More

Ormeau park is located just outside the city centre! It has plenty of good walks to do, and also has tennis courts, football pitch and also indoor facilities!

I have been to a few events being held in the park. It is a very large area and I haven't explored it all. There are lots of hidden bells and structures to see on your walk around. Very quiet for walking through. There is a play area for children and outdoor gym equipment.

Went here for a walk with my wife and 3 year old son. Nice walk. Plenty of space and a good children's park. We went on a Sunday at about 11am and there were very few people around. Appeared to be club and tidy where we went.

Despite the city council's best efforts at maintaining this place and hosting events in it there is always a sense of threat around every corner. Over the years there have been murders, rapes and assaults and there are a lot of street drinkers hanging out around the place. The park itself is quite large but not as pretty as Botanic.

Was staying within walking distance to the park. Had a very easy stroll in it. Good for jogs, cycling. Note the opening hours though.
