All council parks including Moira Demesne, Wallace Park etc are now temporarily closed. This is arising from the COVID-19 epidemic and is in line with guidance aimed at reducing the potential for cross infection.


The Council is very proud of its parks and open spaces. Our facilities provide a relaxing environment for both residents and visitors whether you are looking for a place to walk, cycle, run or just take in the scenery. There are also many playgrounds across Lisburn & Castlereagh City where children can enjoy hours of endless fun.

For the more sports minded, there are a wide range of playing fields and bowling greens which are available for hire.

For further information on the full range of parks and open spaces, please click on the menu on the left handside of the page.
