Barnett Demesne, once a private estate, opened to the public in 1951. Today, the park, in south Belfast, retains much of the character of the original estate.

Its main feature is Malone House which commands stunning views over acres of magnificent parkland, Lagan Valley and the Belfast hills. The park is also home to Belfast Activity Centre, which is located in the old stable yard and offers personal and social development opportunities for young people, as well as many pieces of public art
