Castle Gardens is the most historic open space in Lisburn. It was once the site of Lisburn castle, a 17th Century fortified manor house first built by the Conways, the landlords of Lisburn, in the 1620’s. The house and its contents were destroyed by the great fire of Lisburn in 1707 and not rebuilt. The estate continued in the hands of descendants of the Conway family, including Sir Richard Wallace. After his death and that of Lady Wallace, the gardens were gifted in 1903 to Lisburn for use as a public park
