Attraction Information

Cave Hill Playground is suitable for children aged 3 to 14 and includes cradle swings, slides, spring rockers, a sand play unit and a bicycle roundabout. For older children, there's a spectacular space net, aerial runway and more besides!

Plenty to offer to the average family in terms of entertainment but also in terms of using the area as a historical resource for school work, as the park gets its name from 5 local caves located on the side of the main Belfast cliffs. The park itself contains a vast wealth of natural and historical features including Cave Hill - one of the most visible landmarks in Belfast - and Belfast Castle.

There are several archaeological sites of note in Cave Hill Country Park including the remains of a stone cairn, cashel and crannog. The most spectacular is McArts Fort, an ancient fort which stands almost 368 metres (about 1,200 feet) above sea level! Awesome stuff for kids of all ages and parents too: nature in all it's splendour!

So whether your interests be leisurely, geological, historical or academical there is plenty to do, see and study here that is well worth your time and a spot on your schedule.

Good Park 3 out of 5 stars

Lovely grounds and good park for my 5yo however I was surprised to have to pay £2.50 entrance fee! Not expected at all given it is not noted anywhere. Unlikely to be back again due to the cost
