Hazelbank Park is classed as one of the best parks in Newtownabbey as it is situated on the shores of Belfast Lough and offers fantastic views to Belfast, Carrickfergus and County Down. Within the park you will find some stunning shrub beds, woodland garden and estate trees. In the summer you can visit the shore for a paddle or have a picnic on the grass so there is something for everyone at this park.
There is a medium sized playground for children from the age of 3 to 12, a bowling green, a cycle path and a walking route that runs through the park. The pavilion often hosts classes and courses and the bowling green is open from Easter to September. You can walk or cycle from Hazelbank Park to Belfast on the National Cycle Way. The route passes along the waterside of Belfast Lough right up to the Lagan Towpath.
Bike Hire is no longer available.
Historical Fact – The turrets in Hazelbank Park were used as World War II lookout posts.
