About Castlemilk Park
The woodlands of Castlemilk Park run through the heart of Castlemilk and are a great place to visit; it’s a place that is rich in history and a home to many creatures. For some people the woodlands are a place for peaceful relaxation and for others a place of exploration and discovery. What do these woods mean to you?
The woods stretch from Croftfoot Road to Ardencraig Road and were once part of the designed landscape of Castlemilk House, which was demolished in 1969. The house was situated above the pond near where the Jeely Piece Playzone is located; part of the ruin is still visible today. The old tree lined driveways that now form part of the path network were spectacular. Oak, beech and lime trees tower over head.
Throughout the season these woods are home to many species of plant and animal. In spring, bluebells carpet the woodland and bird song fills the air. Look out for bats on those warm summer evenings or marvel at the fantastic fungi and colour of an autumn adventure. Why not follow those animal tracks on a winter walk; if you’re lucky you may see a roe deer.
