Callendar Park is the jewel in the crown of parks within the Falkirk area, covering over 170 acres and housing the magnificent Callendar House. Whether you're looking for an action packed day or a place to take the children for a picnic and a play, Callendar Park has something for everyone.

Highlights in the park are the amazing new Roman Fort themed play area next to the kiosk and toilets, the adventurous new Natural Play trail which takes the whole family on a half hour wander through the woods and the summer activities which include crazy golf, bouncy castles and swan pedalos on the lake.

The Park has a long history dating all the way back to the construction of the Antonine Wall in 142AD. The estate has been gradually developed since the 12th century, eventually coming into public ownership in the mid-1960s. The woodlands and gardens host a number of interesting historical features including an Arboretum, Ornamental Gardens, a family Mausoleum and a small loch, come along and explore our grounds! 

The Park is a historically-important designed landscape, listed in The Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Scotland.

 

Play Park

Callendar Park has a fantastic Roman Themed play area which brings the history of the site, which contains an excellent stretch of the Antonine Wall, to life. The play area was refreshed in 2019 and contains a fantastic mix of equipment for different ages including many assessable play items. The play area is open 8.30 to 5pm in winter and 8.30 – 7.30pm in summer. Nearby are toilets, a kiosk selling refreshments and the summer activities.

 

Natural Play Trail

Natural play is an important part of the community facilities within Callendar Park. The trail was funded by the Robert Barr trust and Falkirk Environment Trust with support from the Falkirk Common Good Fund, Link Housing and Falkirk Community Trust.

The trail is there for everyone to use in whatever imaginative way they wish. You can play on the equipment alone or with friends and family and create your own fun games as you go around. Keep your eyes peeled for our Roman Snails and also for the magical woodland doors hidden round the route.
