Dean Castle Country Park is a fantastic free day out for all the family. The country park, covering over 200 acres, is nestled in the heart of Kilmarnock and offers something for kids and adults alike to enjoy.
The Country Park boasts beautiful woodland walks, an adventure playground, urban farm, visitor centre, tearoom, shop and a fantastic 14th century castle housing world class collections including historic weapons, armour and musical instruments. (Please note due to current building issues at Dean Castle the musical instruments have been removed from display).
You can explore the park using scenic paths and trails - each season brings with it ever changing plants and wildlife that you might spy along the way. With over 80 hectares of countryside within a very urban area, the park is a great place to get away from the stresses of everyday life and see some fantastic wildlife.
Visit our urban farm area and meet the residents including our adorable kune kune pigs, fallow deer herd, family of llamas and highland cattle and let’s not forget old favourites - Scott the Clydesdale and Timmy and Pip the donkeys.
Take part in some fun environmental education with the Countryside Ranger Service who will also answer any natural history related questions that you may have.
From classic car shows to volunteer days, Dean Castle Country Park offers an extensive and varied events programme throughout the year with something for everyone.
