Jordanstown Loughshore Park
On the edge of Belfast Lough, Jordanstown Loughshore Park is your first stop along the stunning Causeway Coastal Route. Kick back and enjoy the wildlife and scenery around Belfast Lough, get active in the playpark and outdoor gym, explore the cycle path and art trail which goes to Belfast and beyond, or recharge in the onsite café.
This park is situated near the start of the Causeway Coastal Route, just off the Shore Road near the University of Ulster at Jordanstown, along the shores of Belfast Lough.
The park has an excellent modern play area for children aged 3 to 12 and energetic adults will enjoy the outdoor gym. After a walk or cycle along the excellent path that goes between the site and Belfast, you can enjoy a picnic, with panoramic views of Belfast Lough or sample local food in Barista Coffee House.
The open grass area provides a great space for football, kite flying and hosts the Shoreline Festival on the bank holiday weekend at the end of August.
Culture lovers can explore the art installations along the coastal path from Loughshore Park to Hazelbank Park and learn about the heritage and wildlife.
On Wednesday evenings during the summer, local bands perform at the eye catching band stand.
