Tboy, The Serpentine Road is opposite St Gerards and beside the golf course on the Antrim Road but the Wrigley or Snakey path is about 10 mins walk up the road on your right towards Bellevue :)

A good mate of mine lived in the White city for years - Billy Mercer!
Lives in Rathcoole now - we still go walkabout together!
God bless you President Trump.

I didn't realise this was the White City, we called it the flat roofed houses.  I had some friends that still live there.

The White city is on Whitewell Road opposite the Arthur Bridge which leads down towards Abbeycentre. The old Throne Hospital is still there but has been renovated into offices. :) The houses at Doagh Road is Fernagh estate :)
