Drove up here on wed 8th of feb to walk my dog only to find a horse at the gates lying with broken legs and in pain and bleeding and sadly dying this park has cattle grids at its main gate where this horse sadly tried to run across and sadly got injured and died im so angry that they have these cattle grids they have no animals up here anymore horrified at what I saw these grids have to be removed get them removed now before another animal loses its life in such a cruel way DO it now

The place isn't worth going to. There is nothing really to see or do. The information centre was closed and had been for over 2 years. Kids playpark but that is all. As said by others really neglected.

Visited park yesterday and it wasn’t a great experience. Completely overgrown and neglected, couldn’t even sit at picnic table for fear of ticks, grass around nearly as high as table! It wouldn’t take long with a strimmer to tidy up. Overall impression - badly neglected. Won’t be back.

Sadly this once beautiful park is badly run down. There are no animals left apart from a few brave ducks in the muddy pond. The enclosures are an overgrown mess. The cafe's been closed since the start of lock down and the toilets are locked. The visitors centre was closed but I don't know if this is always the case. Even the children's play area is unkempt with long grass around the picnic tables and litter lying around. It's a total embarrassment to Scotland.

Not been for some time, used to visit regularly when the children were smaller.
Last visited with a friend four years ago, but disappointed that fewer animals & birds there now. I got the feeling the park may be short of funding like many attractions.

The only thing worth visiting here for is a play area. The website is completely out of date - there is no visitor centre or cafe (closed since March 2020), no children's farm, no raised walkway, no useful map. It was unloved! (I've emailed the council).

Very disappointed what is available in this park now. I used to visit frequently years ago, & enjoyed seeing/petting the animals. Nothing now except ducks & the like. The tree walk is also away!! That was the reason I took my granddaughter today! She did like the new play park however hidden in tree area. The visitor centre was also closed today which was unfortunate. Will not be hurrying back.

Absolute waste of time. Travelled all the way from Ayr for a nice day out. All websites including the Lanarkshire council website claim it is open, has animals for kids to feed, a treetop walkway, visitor centre, gift shop etc. Nothing was open, not even toilets. Managed to speak to a worker at a small plants and flowers nursery which has opened on site, to be told all animals have been taken away and even the treetop walkway has been taken down. If you are thinking of visiting, don’t. There is a very small play park which kept the kids occupied for all of 5 minutes.
Extremely disappointed having travelled almost an hour and a half for nothing.
Disgusted that the council have removed everything and closed it down without at least updating details online to warn people not to waste their time.

A playpark and nothing else. No walks, no nothing. No animals, no visitor centre, no point in visiting this "park".
