This is a great place for all the family. I visit this park throughout the year as it is close to my home. Lots to do such a a 9-hole golf course, golf range, bowling green open during the season and children's play area with sand pit. The children's play area has won awards for its design and is worth a visit. Great woodland walks by the River Almond. One walk is more formal through the woods leading down from the 9th hole. The other walk leads away by the golf range and it less formal. Plenty of parking at site. Reception in the old stables along with the entrance to 'The Scottish Owl Centre' - that too is well worth a visit. There is an charge for this. The park is free to visit but charges are made for the golf course and golf range. Lovely woodland woods and a great place to see all kinds of wildlife. Early in the morning you might be lucky enough to see deer in the park. Lots of activities held in the park throughout the year.
