Colin Glen Trust is overseen by a Voluntary Board of Directors, representative of both communities in the West Belfast area. 

Since its inception, Colin Glen Trust has been dedicated to restoring and maintaining Colin Glen Forest Park and creating unique natural spaces and attractions for visitors to enjoy.

The Trust has also developed an unrivalled educational resource and a Forest Ranger service within the Forest Park.

In recent years, the Trust has successfully secured funding to expand its offering, including the redevelopment of Colin Valley Golf Course and the addition of world class outdoor attractions such as Ireland’s first Alpine Coaster, Ireland’s first Toptracer Driving Range, Ireland’s longest zipline.
