A 3.4-kilometre shared-use green route and a 3.9-kilometre blue trail with three 1.5-kilometre red trails are among the routes.

Cave Hill Country Park

For decades, people and visitors to Belfast have flocked to Cave Hill, whose towering form can be seen from all around the city. Belfast Castle, named for the five caverns located on the side of the cliffs, is one of the area's many natural, archaeological, and historical attractions. Visitors may follow the well-marked walking trails to the peak for panoramic views over Belfast, suitable for casual and serious hikers. The region is rich in birds and natural terrain, and the kids will love the Cave Hill Adventurous Playground!

The Botanic Gardens

Botanic Gardens is an excellent outdoor escape in the city's heart, with manicured flower gardens and a charming Victorian palm house that has been a part of the park since 1828. Take a stroll through the Queen's Quarter while sipping a coffee from one of the numerous nearby cafés.

Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park

Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park in south Belfast is one of the city's most popular parks. The park, which is 128 acres and features undulating meadows, thickets, forests, and gardens, is home to the City of Belfast International Rose Garden, which draws thousands of visitors during the annual Rose Week celebrations in July.
