This park is the best on I have seen in a long time. Well laid out and safe. A variety of action packed fun ideas for the kids. Take along a picnic on a good day.

Such a great park. Well thought out with lots to do. Right beside a huge green area that older ones can play ball games one while the little ones play in the park.

My kids love it here, lots of apparatus for all ages and abilities and they can stay for ages without getting bored. Only a couple of negatives...it's very spread out so it can be hard for one parent to keep an eye on more than...More

Great Park with maids ice cream across the road. What more do you need? Maybe a bit of sun but then again it is northern Ireland. Lol

Lovely park in Carrickfergus, great facilities. There is one eyesore, an area where the equipment was removed not long after opening and wasn't replaced but other than that, my kids love it. Handy picnic area beside it and plenty of nearby parking available.

My boys love this park, they can spend hours in here!! Can be chilly so wrap up warm!! The toilets under the clock are handy but can be dirty.
