The Ward family designed the Castle Park Walled Garden in the 1840s. It was never open to the public and was considered by many as a secret garden. The then named North Down Borough Council restored this beautiful the Garden and it was officially opened as a visitor attraction in April 2009.
The 1.5 acre site has four distinct sections — the kitchen garden, the herb and topiary garden, the swamp garden and the flower garden. It boasts two unique pieces of sculpture inspired by North Down’s maritime history. Seating is available throughout the garden.
Organic vegetables available from the tearoom for a small donation to charity.
