Belvoir Park is an early-18th-century demesne in a commanding position above the River Lagan. Features include mature trees, forest planting and the remains of an arboretum from the 1840s. The ornamental gardens include round ponds and a stream from the 18th century. In addition there is an Anglo-Norman motte, an ice house and a graveyard. Much of the site is now a golf course and housing development.
The house was built 1740 in the demesne, and was demolished 1961. The demesne was developed with housing and forestry plantations.
