The cafe sells a variety of hot and cold snacks and there is a small children's play area for toddlers within the cafe. There is an abundance of squirrels, sometimes peacocks and a small, but interesting museum which caters... More

"The weather outside is frighful but the Park is so delightful......worth a visit even when it's cold outside. Wrap up warm, choose the right footwear and you can enjoy the delights and unexpected treasures hidden within the wonderful City of Dunfermline. Who would say it was not a city with the historic abbey connected intimately with "The Bruce". You can... More

Beautiful park right on the edge of Dunfermline town centre. Well maintained with great walks and views over the Forth towards the bridges and beyond. When walking at night there are parts that have little or no lighting at all but the main paths are well lit.

My son in law who is originally from Dunfermline took us on a walk through this gem of a park. It was a beautiful day and if you are in Dunfermline do not miss this piece of heaven.

Really great evening out. We had booked tickets for a display in Edinburgh which was cancelled 3 hours prior to start time.... Quick Google turned up the event in the Park. Wow blown away, very busy (organiser estimate 25k people) but FREE..... Usual concession stands, live stage with a Little Mix tribute band and then a 25 min professional fireworks... More

The Firework Display was advertised from 6.00pm until 7.30pm. We arrived in plenty of time for the 6.00pm start on a freezing cold night.Literally thousands of people had to stand around for a full hour before the actual Firework display started. The music system had far too much Bass and buzzed continually for a full hour (certainly on the east... More

Has a couple of play parks for young... More

We love to walk around this park at any time but especially when our grandchildren are staying with us! They love to feed the squirrels and also enjoy the great range of play areas - a great and free day out - not many about these days!
