“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2012

A very short visit but this is a beautiful spot - many of the flowers still in bloom (even in October). Very peaceful considering it is set in the middle of a small but busy city. They could do with cleaning up the statue of Andrew Carnegie though (the pigeons have taken their toll).

“Peaceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2012

The grounds are both peaceful and inspiring. It's inspiring that this park is free to visit and explore (although that is what Carnegie had intended).....

“Dunfermline's treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2012

We probably take it for granted, but as a town we are so lucky to have the glen and pittencrieff park. Generations of families have grown up running around it and playing in the summer, feeding the squirrels, playing at the swings, building snowmen, canoodling after dark ;0) and visiting its various nooks and crannies. Ok, so the train, animal house and pets, paddling pools and maze have gone, but it is still a treasure and a great setting for the annual firework display.

The developers would love to stick luxury homes in it, or a uni business school - keep them away and keep it as Carnegie intended - open to all the people (and visitors) of the town!
