“Wonderful park, thankful to have it on my doorstep”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

This park is a treasure, lots to see and do whether you want to walk, cycle, go boating, visit the sandy beach in the summer or take the kids to the theme park. Like I say. I'm thankful it is so close to me and consider myself lucky because of it. Been visiting this park since I was a lad.

“Stayed at Alona hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

lovely place for a walk in the country but only a couple of miles from Glasgow .
For food couple of nice café around the lake or else visit the Alona Hotel for afternoon tea or lunch or even for a nice class of wine.

“"Nice To See A Park Well Used"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

I love this park and have just returned from a week in the campsite situated near the Theme Park. Although a bit dated now, the Theme Park still gets lots of visitors. A regular bus service past the month of October would help the campers and probably some of the locals. Having said that, there are some lovely walks around the Loch and as long as you do not have a windy, wet day, it is an easy 4 miles or so of exercise. Did we not read the signs properly or are they just not clear enough? We took a 'short cut' to Motherwell town centre and ended up at the Forgewood Bridge! Good exercise though lol.The park could maybe be made better at night with more lighting and pathways near the roadside heading towards the Alona Hotel and then onto the Park entrance at Strathclyde Road. Lots of play areas for the children and boating activities for everyone.

“Family day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Great place on a sunny day for a picnic and also for a leisurely walk. I went with my 2 year old grandson and he had a great time running about and looking at the swans and ducks. There are lots of grassy areas for you to sit and relax. For the young children there is a little play area with chute and swings but this can get very busy. For the older children there is M&D's.
