The Glen Park, Whiteabbey (2)
A path through the wooded glen. The Three Mile water is well hidden, below, out of picture to the right. Just past here the path turns right through some hairpin bends. Today, along the Shore Road, was bitterly cold, assisted by a south east wind. Once in the shelter of the trees it was quite pleasant.
The Glen Park, Whiteabbey :: J3582

A park, owned by Newtownabbey Borough Council, based around the glen of the Three Mile Water, between Bleach Green Viaduct and the Glenville Road, (off the Shore Road at Whiteabbey). The area is now called “The Glen” though it seems originally to have been “Valentine’s Glen”. The Three Mile Water rises between Mossley and Doagh before flowing into Belfast Lough at Whiteabbey.
