With two excellent beaches, spectacular scenery and views across Belfast Lough, tranquil walks through peaceful meadows and wooded glens and a stunning waterfall, Crawfordsburn Country Park provides a relaxing natural retreat.
Hedgehogs, squirrels and badgers are just some of the animals which make their home in the woodland glen and when walking along the coastal paths look out for seals frolicking in the waves.
The park also boasts a large Visitor Centre and Café, an Adidas approved 5K running trail and mobility scooters which are available for hire. New to the park in 2015 is a natural play area, located within the Geology Garden close to the river mouth.
