My husband and I took our grandchildren aged 3years and 9 months on a lovely sunny day. We began our trip with a visit to the small zoo. Our grandchildren loved it and we spent a good half hour there. I had made up a picnic so we found a table and began to eat our sandwiches. Unfortunately we had... More

A group of us enjoyed a lovely walk in the country, yet close to East Kilbride. We started out from Calderglen and walked through the park across Langlands Moss to Auldhouse for lunch and return. The Park facilities were, we enjoyed coffees in the Courtyard Café on return and some of us even visited the zoo to see the meerkats.... More

Part of the walk is closed off due to landslides. You don't know this until you have gone down a steep hill towards the Horseshoe Falls and then you have to climb back up the steep hill as you have no other option! We did this on Sunday and met many others who were equally disgruntled regarding lack of signage.... More

We live locally and come here often. The wee zoo is a winner and cheap at the price. Just over £1 to go in and only adults charged. You can see meerkats, wildcats, guinea pigs, marmosets, wallabies, snakes, fish and all kinds of birds. Grounds beautifully kept. New adventure playground really good, though only a couple of swings. When it's... More

New outdoor park is great for kids, the park has a lot to offer with good nature walks down by the river. Cafe has a good option of food, ice cream and gift shop on offer aswell to keep the family busy.

Great walks down by the river, great for the kids they loved it. Lovely Cafe for sitting in or in the good weather outside. Very good for the dogs also if your dog is anything like our black Labrador they'll love jumping into the water. If you continue up the back of the glen you can walk up to Langlands... More

The Calder Glen park has a large park for young children. It's spread over the sections and great for a family day out. Only criticism is there are only two swings, on a busy day there was a long wait. There is a large BBQ area and lots of country walks. Also within the park is a zoo. It is... More
