Orangefield Park and Victoria Park are open 24/7. The rest of our parks open at 7.30am and close at the following times throughout the year.
If a park contains a 3G pitch, its gates may remain open while the pitches are booked for play. Users must leave the park promptly after play finishes on the 3G pitches as the park gates will be locked within 15 minutes.

Enter the park at Falls Road or Grosvenor Road (opposite the Royal Victoria Hospital). Take Metro no.10A-F from Belfast city centre and get off directly outside the park.
Dunville Park was awarded the Green Flag Award in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. This award recognises the best open spaces in the UK.
We have completed conservation work to the historic Dunville fountain, a beautiful feature of the park, which is now filled with a variety of over 6,500 flowers. You can also enjoy a series of improved paths and landscape areas.
A commemorative statue of local boxer, John Caldwell, is also present at Dunville Park. John was a west Belfast man and a member of Immaculata ABC (West Belfast ABC). He represented Ireland at the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne and became World Bantamweight Champion in 1961.
