Calderglen has so much beauty all year round. Take your children, go with your patten or friends, go alone - I always discover something new. Forest and River and nature all in the middle of suburbia. Definitely worth a visit. You can also follow the path right through out to Langlands Moss, which I would also recommend.

Ive stayed in East Kilbride since 1988 and visited this park on more occasions than i care to remember. Its great place to take the kids to see the small zoo on the grounds and take a leisurely walk around the extensive grounds of this undulating park. I may be biased as I'm from EK but have some great memories... More

Great day out for children and adults alike. The observatory and zoo-£1.30 for adults and children go free- was particularly interesting and the animals and birds were lovely. The children hjust loved the meerkats! Wish that I could have taken a love bird home! Good play areas and nature trails. Had a picnic in the courtyard but will try the... More

I've lived in EK since 1974 and Calderglen was always a jewel in the crown, but sadly no more. The whole park is crying out for help. Rubbish, badly maintained paths. half the park is now closed. Maybe if they spent a million fixing what was already there instead of building another swing park it might come back to its... More

Went here on a lovely afternoon to visit the zoo and grab something to eat. £1.20 entry fee to the zoo which was great value for money. Lots of parking and a lot of open area if anyone was to take kids. We also went to the courtyard cafe which which put a bit of a dampner on things. We... More

I visit Calderglen at leat twice a week with my dog. It's a great place to walk her. There are many different paths to keep it varied. Unfortunatley part of the far side of the trail is closed because of rock fall. Sadly, this looks like it's permenent as there has been a significant new fence put up to block... More
