This forest park is one of the gems in forest parks in Northern Ireland. It is well worth visiting for the Glens of Antrim waterfall walk - the walk through the forest has a variety of paths and all pass impressive water features. There is a restaurant and picnic area for taking a break.Our visit to the Glenariff Forest Park was a bit long with all the walking, the trails and walks we were trying to explore, as well as the break in the middle of all this which we intended to have in order to have something to eat and drink.There are lots of different parks in Ireland and Northern Ireland which we have been to, some of them with the intention of visiting and exploring a specific thing, while others for the intention of just checking the place and giving the kids the chance to have a green area where they could play around.Glenariff Forest Park carries different features that made our trip to the place a bit different and worth all the walking we have been doing; the waterfall walkway which opened 80 years ago is one of those different features of the place which has gone through some upgrading through its three mile length which passes through a National Nature Reserve. In addition to this famous waterfall, there are two other ones found in the park, there are forest trails and riverside walks, visitor centre, a shop, as well as a seasonal caravan/camping site to be found there.
