Redburn Country Park
Redburn Country Park is set on an escarpment above Belfast Lough. There are 7km of pathways and those energetic visitors who climb to the top of the escarpment will be rewarded with spectacular views of Belfast and the South Antrim Hills.
Scrub and grassland cover the top of the hill. There are pleasant walks in all seasons but Spring is the best season to see the spectacular woodland carpet of bluebells, wood sorrel and anemones.
The woods are home to birds such as tits and finches and in the summertime, willow warbler and blackcaps can be found in the scrub and gorse at the top of the hill. In the open glades, rabbits are plentiful and, if lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the park’s shyest resident, the Red Squirrel.
A variety of walks are available in Redburn. All walks start from the main car park, for more information on walks in Redburn Country Park visit www.walkni.com.
