HistoryDrumglass Park is named after Henry Musgrave, the owner of nearby Drumglass House. The name Drumglass means the 'green ridge' or 'green hill'.
Henry Musgrave was a well-known landowner who was elected an Honorary Burgess of the City of Belfast in 1917. He lived in Drumglass House, one of the most prestigious houses in the Malone Road area.
Musgrave died on 2 January 1922, leaving six acres of his property to the city to be used as a public park or children's playground.
The park was initially named Drumglass Playcentre and it was opened to the public on 9 September 1924 by the Lady Mayoress of Belfast, Lady Turner. The house and site's remaining grounds now form part of Victoria College Girls' School.
Drumglass Park contains a private gate lodge, located near the Lisburn Road entrance to the park. It served as the original lodge for Musgrave's estate and was built in the Queen Anne revival style around 1882. You can still see the Musgrave family monogram above one of the doorways and on the sandstone tops of the gate pillars.
