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.

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 Area

The play area will be closed from now until the end of July to allow for the area to be redesigned. We look forward to unveiling the new Roman themed play facilities in August. Thank you to our partners Falkirk Environment Trust, Kelvin Valley and Falkirk LEADER Programme and the National Lottery Heritage Fund as well as Falkirk Council for providing the funding needed for this exciting development. Callendar Park will still be a fun place to visit while the works take place as our new Natural Play trail remains open as well as all the summer activities such as the bouncy castles and swan pedalos. There is also a range of child friendly indoor fun within Callendar House.

If you would like to support the project you can donate via our crowdfunding page which allows local businesses and users of the park to give something back to this much loved facility.
