About

From Drains Bay the route starts with a colourful children’s playground, then continues along until you see a National Cycle Network milestone directing you to turn left onto a mature tree-lined avenue. Continue towards another children’s activity centre, and then right onto the park’s main road. This is shared with cars and walkers.

At the Visitor Centre just ahead, pick up a leaflet and begin exploring all the attractions at your leisure. The unique hornbeam maze in the shape of Northern Ireland, woodland walks, beautiful walled garden with sundials, Activity Centre and the Family Zone should keep your family busy for most of the day. To exit, retrace your tracks back to Drains Bay or continue along the main exit onto the Causeway Coastal Route.
