“lovley walks along the river”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

This is a lovely park and large too. Lovely winter walks along the river and long summer days can be enjoyed laying on the grass. Nice large park so you never feel your on top of anyone else that might also be there soaking up the rare summer sun :D

“Great Example of a Victorian Park”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Well laid out and looked after. The statues to Jimmy Guthrie and Bill McClaren are especially moving as they are proud sons of Hawick. Top place to bring young children on a dry day as they can roam around safely to their hearts content.

“Superb park for short and medium walks”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

Our favourite park and such a treat in the middle of Hawick. Can't wait to see the developments now that the HLF money is in place and staff have been recruited to take the project forward.

“A lovely place to visit”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

No matter the season Wilton Lodge Park offers a beautiful changing environment. Daffodils in Spring, delightful flower beds in Summer, red, brown and golden leaves in Autumn and crispy snow and frost in Winter. A great place to explore and walk through the avenue of trees or by the River Teviot. Visit the museum and gallery , enjoy a cup of coffee in the cafe, play a round of putting, relax on one of the many benches , become involved either as a participant or a spectator in a rugby or football game , or take the children to the swing park. The war memorial is award winning and unusual and there are impressive statues of local famous townsmen, namely Jimmy Guthrie and Steve Hislop, both motor cyclists and Bill McLaren the radio and TV rugby commentator A friend who recently visited the Park compared the experience to visiting Kew Gardens! And there is no entrance fee.

“A gem!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Lots of lovely walks with plenty of plants and trees to look at as you go, also statues - the latest being Bill McLaren our rugby hero! During the summer there is a super little cafe selling teas, soup, paninis and home baking. Also during the summer there's Crazy Golf & a Bouncy Castle. I love Wilton Lodge Park!
