Monikie Country Park, with its reservoirs, woodland and parkland is an ideal location for a visit to the countryside. The scenic surroundings offer many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors at any time of the year. The park is open throughout the year with the ranger centre open during most daylight hours. We offer hire and instruction in windsurfing, sailing, canoeing and kayaking between May and September. As well as all craft and equipment, changing facilities with hot showers are provided. You can also store or launch your own craft. We also offer high ropes, teambuilding, raft building, mountain biking, conservation projects and guided walks. The Rangers can tailor any activity to suit your needs, whether it is for a fun birthday party or to meet your outdoor learning outcomes through the Curriculum For Excellence.

A great park to visit for a walk or take the kids to let off some steam or feed the ducks for 50p. Also has great outdoor facilities for those looking for something more active, canoeing, high ropes and paddel boarding.

Have visited a few times with friends to walk our dogs but was very surprised by the £2.70 parking charge this time round. Not only is that a bit steep but the women's toilets were in a dreadful state and had no hand soap.
