Castle Park is located in Bangor town centre and is perfect for a relaxing stroll through the woods

A walk through this wooded wonderland is an exhilarating experience throughout the seasons. Obtain the Castle Park Nature Trail Guide from North Down Museum, located in the grounds of Castle Park with Bangor Castle (Town Hall), and follow the arrowed pathways.

Stroll along the tree-lined avenue to explore the formal gardens of the Town Hall. Examine the sundial in the forecourt, believed to be from the 8th Century monastic origin and explore the Arboretum on the south side of the Town Hall, which contains a fine collection of mature conifers and deciduous trees.

Follow the pathways through Castle Park to arrive at Bangor Castle Walled Garden, a real hidden gem.
