Ormeau Park

Ormeau Park is the oldest municipal park in Belfast, officially opening to the public in 1871.

It is still one of the largest parks in Belfast and offers a great mix of horticulture, woodland, flower displays and wildlife.

The park is also a popular venue for sport, with a range of facilities, including bowling greens and pavilions, tennis courts and soccer pitches, located with Ormeau Park Playing Fields.

A number of events are held in the park each year, including concerts and band performances.

Park features include eco trails and orienteering courses, horticultural displays, a children’s playground, seasonal bedding and specimen trees.

Ormeau Park playing fields contain soccer pitches, two bowling greens, basketball and netball courts and tennis courts.

The bowling greens are open 11:00-16:00, Monday to Friday (winter) and 11:00-21:00, Monday to Saturday (summer). The pitches are open from dusk to dawn.
