“What a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Still gives the best view of Paisley and the Kilpatrick Hills. I love to sit I the car park and look over the town whenever I visit.

“Great place, but bring a jacket”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

Good for something to do if you don't mind the travel. Most commonly after 8pm it turns into a lovers lane type thing, and there are a fair few dog walkers around, but it's on a large enough area that it shouldn't affect you.

Bring a jacket because there is no protection from the wind.

There are a few benches around the area and several little interesting marks in the area, including a sundial! Pack a lunch and take a few hours to appreciate how close to the city you can be, but also how close to the green we are as well.

“Great views of the clyde valley”

Great at night. The Big Car Park in the sky! Wouldn't miss the chance to experience the visit again. More houses now less green belt but still worth a visit.

“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.
