Brilliant Trails are proud to launch three new family trails for Stormont Estate, Belfast, launched Saturday 21st April. The Stormont interactive trails are great for your family, group or just yourself to enjoy. Navigate around the beautiful Stormont woodland on the Environmental Trail, learn some interesting facts on the History Trail or find some of our wooden friends or fairies on the Woodland Trail.

Available free of charge just off the Newtownards Road, which is the main road between Belfast to Newtownards. Around the area, there is plenty of free parking, so don’t worry if you need to drive and park.

Nearby is the amazing Stormont Mo Mowlam play park, which got an update itself to change the play park into an inclusive play park. The Stormont play park was specially designed so children of all-abilities can enjoy the park and is known to be one of the best play parks in Northern Ireland.

There is also a dog park at Stormont, if you would like to take some time out from navigating the trails and walks of Stormont to let your dog enjoy something they may have not experienced before.


About the Stormont Trails

Each trail we designed lasts around 30 minutes, suitable for all ages, pushchair friendly and toilets located close by. Just remember to bring the appropriate clothing for all the trails depending on weather conditions.

The three trails we designed can be located once through the main Stormont Gates. Each trail offers something different, all of which are worth it. The history trail offers information and an insight to the history of the Stormont Estate and Park itself. The Environmental Trail offers information on the environment around the park, this includes what wildlife and plants are located around the park and the heritage of the estate. The third trail, the woodland trail offers a range of additional features such as our specialised wood carvings, fairy houses and more. The kids will love the woodland trail!

The opening times for Stormont park change regularly but they usually follow daytime hours which would mean the park is usually open to 9pm everyday. The Stormont play park closes 30 minutes before the rest of the park, so it close usually around 8:30pm depending.

Stormont Estate Trails Upgrades

Brilliant Trails where welcomed back to the Stormont park to update, upgrade and to add a new trail. It was a great opportunity to invest time once again to showcase our work in East Belfast.

One of our first upgrades to the Stormont trails and park was to add more kid friendly signage and products to the trails. Some of the products we added included signage and our carved mushrooms. This helped bring a new life to the trails located around the Stormont Estate with new elements to the trails.

We were then invited back to the estate to design and create a fourth trail. This was the Bug Safari Trail. This is a more interactive trail which offers a bug hunt, which at the time was a completely new type of trail to us. Around the Bug Safari Trail, there are 13 bugs to find, using clues to help solve puzzles and answer questions.
