Tucked away from the Coast Road outside Ballygally (Larne) is a well thought out adventure park for kids of all ages. Forest walks, crazy golf, maze pitch and put and a cafe are all within the confines of the park.

While we as older walkers enjoyed the trails, gardens, maze, sundials, wildlife, interpretive panels, and scenery, there was lots more for families.
