“Walk and play”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

This is a great park to visit on your own, with friends or family and dog. There are two water reservoirs within the park where many locals fish with no charge, good to start the kids fishing here.
The park has recently been improved, the walkways all round have been surfaced and access stairs have been renewed making the visit much better.
There is a great waterfall hidden in one of the pathway (it is signposted) but there is steps so limited access for some. The wildlife, plants and atmosphere are lovely.
The only downside is that there are no toilets, although there is a ranger station situated at the entrance of the park and they may help.

“Wonderful space”

We used to take the dogs to the Braes for walking and exercise it is a wonderful area with lots of space to roam and let kids and animals run around. Lovely views over Paisley and the Campsies.

“Looking for a beautiful walk in Paisley.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

If you can avoid the perverts of perhaps yourself in search of them, then the scenery is perfect.
Overlooking the entire Clyde value west of Glasgow you have breathtaking views.
Daytime there is more camping than an annual jamboree and at night the dogging takes over so don't go then unless you are intrigued by the shenanigans of these deviants.
Each to their own bug you have been warned.

“Stunning views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013 via mobile

Great place to go for a walk or picnic. Walk over the braes and go to the waterfall. It's spectacular. Also loads of free roaming highland coos. So nice op for a photo or two.
