About Dams To Darnley Country Park

Dams to Darnley is Scotland's newest country park. The park covers over 1300 acres of open space between the reservoirs between Barrhead and Newton Mearns, and the village of Darnley.

Even though the park is still in the early stages of development, it already provides plenty of recreational activities for local residents and visitors alike. The large networks of paths through the scenic countryside are ideal for walking, cycling and horse riding.

The park landscape is varied and consists of the open water of the Barrhead dams, wetland and burns, woodland, grassland and scrub. As a result the park is home to a diverse range of wildlife and in particular is a birdwatchers paradise.

Walking, cycling and horse riding

A seven mile network of paths already exists across Dams to Darnley Country Park providing opportunities for walking, cycling and horse riding. As the country park develops the path network and access links to surrounding communities will be developed further.

What's on at the country park

Throughout the year the countryside rangers will be delivering a series of community events, activities and guided walks for all the family.

All the events are FREE, although booking is required for some. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

See a list of the forthcoming events below...
