The device was removed by Army bomb experts for further examination on Friday evening.
An area from the rear of Rosetta Terrace to Carnfinton Park was cordoned off during the alert, which has now ended.
"Police would again like to thank local residents for their patience and co-operation," a spokesperson said.
The alert came ahead of the Ballymaconnelly Sons of Conquerors Flute Band parade, which is understood to have passed off without incident in the area.
