“Great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

We spent a whole day here. Kids are treated to animal feeding time around 1 o'clock I think it is? Great play park and adults love it too. It's always clean but certain bits can get muddy if it's been raining so take stable footwear and clothing if kids want to play.

If you like cricket, or not you can watch them on a nice summer evening, or take the children to the playpark or see the animals,plants and have an ice cream or a coffee, try one of the many trails, it,s great.

“Something for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Calderglen country park caters for all the family. Gift shop has everything from toys to jewellery, little unusual knick knacks. Zoo has a variety of animals and the meerkats are a must see. Courtyard cafe can be a bit expensive though but you can always pop into the Torrance House Golf club for lunch or a snack. Staff behind the bar are very friendly and helpful. The conservatory is brilliant and a great place to shelter from the elements. Carparking is a bit of a problem at the weekends though.

“Great for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Lovely park--it's nice in the summer, where you can do your BBQ close to the park--sandy park--the public toilets are okay, and the children love the wee animals there too...
