We have plenty of facilities to make your visit to Craigtoun Country Park as enjoyable as possible. If you have any specific requirements, you can contact us beforehand and we’ll do our best to assist.
Free Attractions Open All Year
There is a large Adventure Playground, which is maintained by Fife Council, as well as an All-Inclusive Play Area, which was added by the Friends of Craigtoun in 2017. There are Trampolines, which are built into a large sand pit area and, on the quieter north side of the park, you will find our Trim Trails and a 30ft Zip Wire. To the right of the Cafe lies the well-loved Fairy Glen, an enchanting wooded area that is fondly remembered by many from childhood visits to Craigtoun.
** The Adventure Playground is temporarily closed as of 27th August 2020 to allow Fife Council to carry out some repair work. We do not have a definite completion date but will post accordingly when it reopens. **
Parking is free of charge but we do have donation boxes available and anything you care to put in them is greatly appreciated. There are disabled spaces available and an overflow. Occasionally things do get really busy, so on very sunny days and event days it’s worth checking our Facebook page before you leave to avoid disappointment.
There are 2 public toilet blocks which you will see highlighted on the Park Map. The toilet block on the east side of the park has baby changing and disabled facilities and there are also toilets inside the Craigtoun Cafe for customer use.
First Aid Facilities
Should you require assistance while in the park, please make your way to the Ticket Office, if possible, or speak to a member of staff who will arrange for a First Aider to come to you.
Picnic Benches and Barbecue Stands
There are a number of picnic benches located outside the Craigtoun Cafe and beside the Picnic Hut. The main Picnic Area is located between the Crazy Golf and the Adventure Playground and here you will also find barbecue stands which are free to use. You can set up a barbecue elsewhere in the park but please do not place them directly on the grass or on the picnic benches and, when you are done, make sure you leave the used barbecues beside the bins, not in them – thank you!
Craigtoun Country Park
For those who are looking for nothing more than a walk in the park, there is still so much to see in the 47 acres of well-maintained grounds that make up Craigtoun Country Park. Follow the Park Map to see the key features which include the Italian Gardens, Cypress Avenue, the Japanese Gardens and our National Iris Display Beds.
Close to the Adventure Playground you will find an open shelter, which was installed in 2019, thanks to a donation from Stay in St Andrews – perfect for those occasional showers that we get in Scotland!
