The Lisburn and Castlereagh ‘Park Life’ free fun programme will take place this summer in four parks across the area from 6 July to 1 September 2024.  
Park Life will run in Wallace Park, Moira Demesne, Moat Park and Castle Gardens.  This year there will a few Wednesday events for those looking for some mid-week family fun. 

Hosted by us throughout the summer residents can meet Spiderman, Elsa, Sleeping Beauty and Batman as well as join our Teddy Bears Picnic.

These popular parks offer excellent facilities for our residents, so they are the ideal locations for hosting family events.  Our varied and accessible entertainment and musical programme has something for everyone.  

Saturday 31 August will see Castle Gardens host ‘Busking in the Gardens’ from 12 noon to 4pm.  This is a first for the Park Life programme and we look forward to welcoming local artists to showcase their talent.

Councillor Jonathan Craig, Communities and Wellbeing Chair welcoming the return of this popular programme said: “As a council we work hard to bring events throughout the year close to the doorstep of our residents.  Park Life is no exception and inclusion is a priority for us.  We hope our residents enjoy our Play Away Sensory Days. 

"Building on previous successes and valuable feedback we plan to deliver a different event each Saturday across the council area.  From 11am to 1pm on a Saturday Park Life will be packed with events for families and children from character themed days to Jurassic Adventures.  Music from local bands follows these each Sunday from 2pm to 3pm.  We hope as many people as possible will come along and enjoy our events this summer.”
