Spotted a sleeping heron, a kingfisher, pheasant and some Jays. Perfect cycling for everyone, lovely scenic path for walkers, cyclists, runners and canal/river lovers. The cafe in Lady Dixon park sells enormous scones! What more could you ask for!

One of NIs treasures. Walk/run/cycle from Belfast - Lisburn (and beyond) with plenty of entrance/exit points, off-shoot parks, and an excellent cafe. Glorious. All free.
