Explore Glen Lyon Park and watch wildlife in eleven acres of woodland set along the steep banks

Glenlyon is a quiet spot on Church Road in Holywood, this Park offers eleven acres of woodland along the steep banks of the quaintly named Twistle Burn.
The park is within walking distance of the town centre. Eleven acres, mainly woodland, are laid out along a linear route on the banks of the Twisel Burn. It has several sets of steep steps.


Glenlyon is a pet paradise.This walk is less-known and a relaxing walk for pampered pooches and equally enjoyable for us on two legs with the many picturesque green areas to explore in the eleven-acre span.
