I live right near here. It's a great local park, that's nice to walk in the evenings. It has some interesting sites with the old mines....but if you don't live here, I cannot see going out of your way to visit. If you do live here, and you haven't been, take an afternoon walk with your kids, your dog or... More

The park looks new and very clean. there is a mine elevator with a big fence around it, could use some sort of plaque saying something about it. We saw fish in the lake, kids riding bicycles on the paved paths. Very nice pleasant place.

The lake walk is a nice short leisurely walk kids can easily do. Across the street is also fun and has a few nature trails and a creek to play in and a wall to climb. The only thing that would make this spot better would be to have a playground.

If you want to burn off a couple calories or take some semi-nature photos, this isn't a bad, quick place to do it. It's right alongside the road and has neat features. There's nothing to DO here, just a place to chill for a minute or two.

July 2015 the Mid-Lothian Mine Train section of this park is currently being modified to make it more handicapped accessible, but it's still an enjoyable stroll - or faster walk/run if you prefer - and we're looking forward to the finished product. The Mid-Lothian Mines Park is divided into two section that are connected via a short under road tunnel.... More

Historic mine park with walking trails and walking loop around a lake. Sort of strange location (around a lot of subdivisions) and there appears to be some continuing construction, but nice for a walk or short run.

If you are looking for a trail that is a little unique and a fun place to take your dogs for a walk, Look no further. The park has interesting things to see and is around a scenic pond. It is easy to find as it is right off the main road, and the trails are pretty well populated.

This is a nice small local park. There is a parking area on either side of the road that divides the park. On the East side there is a forested area with a trail leading end to end with ruins from the old coal mine. The west side of the park has a walkway around the pond.
