Park Information

This Green Flag accredited Park is situated on a gentle hillside overlooking an ornamental lake.  Facilities include car parking, picnic tables, a duck pond, toilets, easy access pathway and play equipment.

The active Friends of Barclay Park group was established in 2011 and have been successful in attracting Heritage Lottery Funding which has been used on restoration of the lake, interpretation panels, new habitat creation and materials to deliver educational activities to local schoolchildren.

The Friends have also put together a 1.6km tree trail, the information leaflet is available here and the latest managment plan here
