Springfield Park

Springfield Park (also known as Springfield Dam) in west Belfast opened to the public in December 2020 following a £1.2 million redevelopment. This work was part of the Forth Meadow Community Greenway project.

Getting to Springfield Park

Enter the park at Springfield Road or Clovelly Street. If you are travelling by bus from Belfast city centre, take Metro no.80, 80A, 81 and 81A.

Help us name the bridge

In October and November 2022, we asked residents from the surrounding communities for suggestions on potential names for the pedestrian and cycle bridge within the park. The public then voted in the new year on a shortlist of four names that were selected by cross-community panel. The results of this vote will be announced in due course.

Keep an eye on our social media platforms and our consultation hub (link opens in new window) for more information.

Community building

Within the park is a community building which is available to local community groups, schools, youth projects and people to book. To book, email
