Colin Glen Hosts St Patrick’s Day Family Event 2016

15 Feb 16 / Events


A big thanks to everyone who came along to our St Patricks Family day in the Forest. Such a great day was had by all our team and judging by the feedback from all our visitors, a good day by them too. We’re excited for next year already and will tell you more when we know more about it. In the meantime do check back for other events we will be running later in the year!

A reminder of what the day was all about:

“The home of Ireland’s only official Gruffalo Trail, is to host a St. Patricks Family day. The event will be an opportunity for families to gather at this beautiful park on the outskirts of Belfast and enjoy a range of activities, including the very popular Gruffalo Trail but more importantly, the launch of the Colin Glen Fairy village.

The event will also mark the launch of the Spring Summer season for the park and people who come along to the St. Patricks Day event will be able to have a go at a range of outdoor activities such as the climbing wall, zip line, high and low ropes course, mountain biking, laser tag and archery.

Of course being St. Patrick’s Day the park will be filled with music, entertainers and the children will be able to get into the atmosphere with face painters and bouncy castles. We are also aiming to host a craft village so as you can take a break from the activities and browse through some of the stalls.

We are expecting a large crowd for this exciting day and have teamed up with Translink who will be providing a Park & Ride service from their Black’s Road Park and Ride site. The shuttle service will operate from 10:45am to 4:30pm. There will be no parking available on site.”
