A peaceful haven in busy Newtonabbey. Brown trout, salmon and otters swim in the river. Lesser celandine, bluebells and wood anemone flower in spring. And on summer evenings bats wheel overhead in pursuit of moths.
There are shops and a café in Monkstown village a 1km walk away, and the Hillside garden centre, toilets and café 2km away off the Doagh Road. The wood’s small gravel car park offers parking off the Monkstown road.
