A stroll through this small and long-established woodland offers a pleasant escape from the hustle and bustle of Bangor.
Balloo Woodland is managed in partnership with Ards and North Down Borough Council and forms an important part of a network of wildlife sites in the area.
The woodland is the last remnant of the gardens of Balloo House - home of the Steele-Nicholson family from the early 1700s – and hosts a fine variety of mature trees including good examples of oak, beech and Scot’s pine, some of which are several hundred years old. Other habitats found here include a small pond, a wildflower meadow and areas of scrub.
