Buchanan Park is lovely in summer months. I love the beautiful lake there. It is often busy with dog walkers. If you are not a dog person- you may not like it as there are often several dogs.

Very pleasant walk around the park, with a lots of friendly people. A little annoying that there are lots of youngsters smoking weed.

Buchan park is a great place for a family picnic and a stroll. There are some great woodland walks and a large lake (with fish). We tooks the dogs and they loved being off the leash and running through the woods.
