  • One of the Best Coastal Parks in Northern Ireland! Lots of green space, there’s a playpark, tennis courts, 4G pitches, historical sites & monuments and some Fantastic Coastal views and on a good day views of Scotland. Lots of people walk around this area everyday especially taking the promenade route from Chaine Memorial Tower all the way to the Black Cave Tunnel / Black Arch and back.
