“Excellent Day Out”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

This is a great day out with or without kids there is a massive amount of ground to cover many nature trails and beautiful walks I've been going here since I was young and haven't yet covered every inch. There are brilliant play parks rivers lakes hills grassy areas for football rounders or sunbathing a cafe with gift shop and ice cream look out for summer fairs and gala days. Free party and a zoo which is a small fee to enter and has lovely animals outdoors and exotic animals birds and fish indoors.
Football and rugby park on site too.

“fantastic park”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

lots of walks and trails here plus a nice café and garden area with zoo which is a shame because used to be free but since the council penny pinching they charge to gain entry other than that great place for the family as plenty of places to have picnic or a Barbie also its well kept too nice place well worth the drive

“Good visit”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

First visit to this park with infant class. Childrens Zoo good value as it is inexpensive.
The playpark is very clean and safe.The courtyard is lovely and has a nice cafe which offers good snacks and a yummy latte. The overall layout of the park is lovely and you can have a fantastic day out weather permitting.I I am visiting again during the summer hols with my grandson.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

I have visited Calderglen on a couple of occasions with my toddler and it is definitely worth a visit. There is a very toddler friendly mini-zoo which only costs £1.25 so is a complete steal as well as a toddler play area which was very clean. We didn't go to the larger adventure playground though there were kids rampaging past to get to it, so it must be good!

There is a lovely glen walk down by the river and I saw signs towards a bbq area as well. What lets it down for me is the cafe which is rotten. It's such a shame because it's set in a courtyard and could be so lovely, but I just don't find the bog standard menu of cheese pieces and baked potatoes very inspiring. The picnic area was well used and seemed very well kept, so my advice would be to take your own!

“This is a long time favourite”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

This has been a favourite with our children and with grandchildren. Lovely walks in the park and by the river. The garden and animals are worth a visit. Good day out every time.
