Glenbank Park


Ligoniel Road,
Belfast,
BT14 8BY

Glenbank Park originally belonged to the Sinclair family, who also owned the land which was used to create Falls Park and Belfast City Cemetery.

By the middle of the 19th century, the estate had become the property of the Ewart family; a group of linen manufacturers who owned a large mill on the Crumlin Road and a bleach green next to the site. The Ewarts were keen to contribute to their neighbourhood and offered Belfast Corporation (now the Belfast City Council) seven and a half acres of their land to use as a public park for the Ligoniel area.

Approval was granted in January 1921 and, later that year, another three-quarters of an acre was added to the estate to 'square off' the shape of the park. The Ewarts also contributed money to set up a children's corner with playground equipment.
