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.
The Foundry Bridge
In late 2022, we asked residents from the surrounding communities for suggestions on potential names for the pedestrian and cycle bridge within the park. Following a public vote in early 2023 on a shortlist of four names, the bridge was named The Foundry Bridge. It received 712 votes (44 per cent of all votes).
Within the park is a community building which is available to local community groups, schools, youth projects and people to book. To book, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
