Linn Park

Rating

Terrain

  • A mix of: open fields; and wooded walks
  • Undulating throughout but there are plenty of flat paths should you wish to avoid the hills
  • Riverside walks

 

Facilities

There’s a car park at the adventure playground (accessed from Netherlee Road), but should you want to enter the park via the main entrance, we'd advise parking in the car park on Linn Park Avenue, next to Netherlee Primary School. From here take a left out of the car park and then turn right onto Clarkston Road. The park is immediately on your right.


You can also cut into the back of Linn Park by crossing over the field beside the play park on Linn Park Avenue.

Hazards

  • The riverside walks can be a bit unpleasant in the height of summer due to midges.
  • The riverside walks have a lot of steps and are both muddy and rocky, so be careful with your footwear. These walks aren't suitable for prams or wheelchairs.
