I was walking from the town to the Walled Garden and marveled at the trees and peaceful green area I was walking through. It was glorious and not to be missed. The trees are huge, and ther is a ton of room to roam and be thankful you're alive.

At Castle park today in Bangor. It was still early but a wonderful warm morning with the trees rustling and the birds singing. What more could you want? Well I'll tell you. A walk up towards the end of the park behind the castle, near to the new aquatic center brings you to the walled garden which is stunning! There... More

We have gone there with our two dogs who - whether off or on the lead always stay close to us. I've read a comment from one person (dated last year) to say that the park was used as a dog's toilet'. Not by ours!! and we have seen others, like us, who diligently lift anything deposited by their animals... More

Nice park for short walk. Usually walk through here and grab a coffee at the walled garden. Some parts obviously used by teenagers as drinking dens (as kids do). Great place for birds and squirrel if animal lover / photographer.

I love this park and walk through it daily but the dog owners have no regard for those who aren't dog owners. Dogs are off their leads, they are running all round, you couldn't walk off the paths as you wouldn't know what you are walking in. All this and next to the dog warden!

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...
