We've visited Craigtoun in the past and we're delighted to see some more improvements with a new accessible swing seat as well as a larger birds nest swing and a wheelchair accessible roundabout. Cafe area had been upgraded. Staff all exceptionally friendly and helpful. Activities good value and everything well maintained.

it was wonderful returning to Craigton Park after so many happy childhood memories. It is now run by a volunteer group who do a fantastic job and are so dedicated to maintaining it and providing a great safe day out for all the family. The park is free to enter which is fantastic so it is available to all! You... More

Bought tickets for some of the attractions and went on tractor ride and train which was great fun. Wanted to go on the boats but the queue was... More

This is a brilliant place for younger children. Our party consisted of three sixteen year olds, a twelve and a thirteen year old. They all enjoyed the boats and the mini zip wire! It was a last minute decision at approx 3.00pm. We were pleased with the facilities even though our Children were a little too old! Ideal for a... More

Great park to spend the day in, was bit cold today so didn't stay as long as would have liked. All the members of friends of craigtoun were lovely and helpful. Kids loved the train and tractor rides, they mentioned the tractor couldn't go on normal route as the bridge is under repair but kids still loved it. We bought... More

Had a great day out during the Easter holidays and the kids thoroughly enjoyed it along with the adults!! The only downside of the day was the food in the cafe, burger was not cooked through and chips were still hard, we never expected much from it but cooked food would be a given. Maybe a picnic next time.

We bought the family ticket at £20 and while we needed it for the small steam train, rowing boats and small bike area everything else including bouncy castles was free. Café was open and was excellent value for money but only one person serving and one person in kitchen so it was pretty busy. Lots of picnic tables so take... More
