Parks and Open Spaces

The People’s Park

The People’s Park, Ballymena is a substantial urban park providing outdoor recreational facilities for local people and visitors.

Providing play equipment, tennis courts, outdoor gym equipment and gentle walks the site is well used by local people of all ages from dog walkers throughout the day to school children before and after school to families throughout the week – the People’s Park is certainly a place for people.

The provision of picnic areas throughout provides visitors with the option to stay a while and the ever-popular ice cream van makes for happy children throughout the summer months.

The People’s Park is also used by youth groups, schools and other organisations – booking information can be found on our 'Can I book a Council owned park?' page.
