Sports pitches and facilities

Due to Storm Ali all of our parks and open spaces (including playgrounds, pitches and playing fields) will close tomorrow – these venues will close this evening at their normal time and will not re-open tomorrow morning. We hope all parks will open as normal on Thursday 20 September.


We manage and operate 128 sports pitches and playing fields in Belfast, spread across 28 sites throughout the city. We've developed a Playing Pitches Strategy to help make sure we continue to provide high-quality pitches which can be accessed by everyone. 

The strategy is also part of our Physical Investment Programme. In 2012 we set aside £14.1 million to improve facilities at ten sites across Belfast. We also received a further £1 million contribution from the GAA. 

Pitches and playing fields

We have pitches and playing fields across the city. 

These pitches are available to be used for all sports including rugby, soccer and gaelic games.

Cherryvale playing pitches will be completed and open on Thursday 27 September 2018. This will mark the completion of Belfast City Council’s Pitches Strategy.

Currently we are working to replace the existing pitch at Ulidia Playing Fields with a 3G pitch.  Work is due to complete by the end of 2018.
