Craigtoun Park is a 47 acre park only 2 miles from St Andrews. It's a great day out for the whole family. Try the Rio Grande railway, Crazy Golf, Putting and Puffin,Billy - the road train that takes you round the whole Park. There are boats and pedaloes, a Bouncy castle and pedal cars for the little uns. The cafe serves teas and coffees and has a huge selection of ice creams. Park is open weekends until 28th June and then daily until the end of August, then weekends through September and much of October.

I visited the Park at the end of the season just as all the rides were closing. However, the park is immaculate and is beautifully kept and the staff are really friendly. During the season, there is a multitude of things to entertain children at no great cost. There is a café which serves basic food, tea and coffee but... More

Craigtoun Park is a country park which is now run by volunteers with help from the council in the gardening and grounds area. It is a credit to these volunteers. A local institution, it upgrades itself every year and is an outstanding example of what can be done when a small group of dedicated people believe so strongly in the... More

Loads of people but a very run down place. Needs more updating and some safer markings around the ponds especially for the little ones!! Staff you can find to be awful rude and not want you there. Very expensive for what you get, not a lot to do, fun for children ages 2-5 apart from that very boring 👎🏼

We've been twice this year - once at Easter hols, then last week during half term. Both times were great - lovely big council park for walks and running around (toddler happy), super climbing frames and zip line, and a few kid-friendly activities to make it a bit more exciting for the 8 year-old and 10 year-old: bouncy castle, pedal...

Visited this park with Grandchild.Beautiful grounds, with a good mixture of Paid and Free attractions onsite. Cafe on site, or take your own food and have a picnic. The trips on the "Wee Train",and the Tractor hauled carriages was a great success. The Zip Wire and Boating Pond were also a great hit. To be run by volunteers, this was... More

We visited Craigtoun this morning and I felt compelled to leave a review- which I never do. The range of activities were wonderful- we went on the wee train, bouncy castles, go karts, trampolines and had a play in the park- our young boys loved it all, as did we. The staff on the tractor, train,and at the bouncy castle... More
