Muiravonside is Falkirk's only Country Park, providing 170 acres of stunning woodland and parkland, a mini demonstration farm, a sculpture trail, children's play area and a café at the Visitor Hub courtyard. The park is free to access all year round and offers spectacular scenery accessible through a network of paths. please note our main car park has a £1 parking charge.
The River Avon trail runs through the site, please follow the diversion signs to navigate round the section of route closed due to rock fall. The John Muir way passes close to the site and can be accessed by following the wooden stairs up to the top of the impressive aqueduct. The Sculpture and Poetry trail added to the park in 2016 can be enjoyed by heading through the archway off the main car park and then following the 'art in the park' way markers and map boards.
Newparks Farm is a small demonstration farm located off the main car park. A range of rare breed Scottish livestock, rescued animals and birds are homed here. Please keep your dog on a lead and do not bring food to feed the animals, some of them need a specialist diet to help them stay healthy. We will also be open until 5pm at weekends for the whole of the school summer holidays, giving you and the family longer to visit. Please remember to put a couple of pounds in the donation box if you have enjoyed your visit.
It's a great place to bring kids and you'll find information up at each enclosure telling you about the animals as well as alerts letting you know about any special feeding times and our events program. You can support the work we do by donating in the farm courtyard or by becoming a 'Friend of the Farm', our annual sponsorship option.
The Steadings Café can be found at the Visitor Hub courtyard and is run by the Action Group during the week as a training opportunity for young people with different needs. The Café is staffed at weekends by Falkirk Community Trust where you'll find a selection of hot and cold food and drinks. Next to the café are the ruins of the old house and a children's play area.
The Visitor Centre has re-opened after refurbishment and has a meeting room and education room which you can book for a small fee.
We run a whole program of events from wildlife watches to craft sessions. Education activities and private tours can also be booked directly with the Countryside Ranger.
We run a regular conservation volunteering program which you can join at any time. We welcome everyone and you don't need any special skills, just enthusiasm, sensible outdoor clothing and an interest in improving the park. Please contact the Countryside Ranger to register your interest and find out more via our email@example.com email address.
