I was very pleasantly surprised by this little gem in Dunfermline. I was very lucky with the weather but the cherry blossom was phenomenal and I now don't feel the need to have to visit Japan in spring after seeing this path lined blossom! Loved...More

An impressive entrance off the main street and as I was here at cherry blossom time it was spectacular to walk through. I found the maps a little hard to follow as they aren't displayed logically in geographical orientation. The information notices are very helpful....More

We found this park by accident. It was lovely. Full of squirrels disappointed we didn't see any peacocks. Great family day out for all ages.

We did not walk though the whole park as my parents can't walk long distances, but what we seen looked very pretty and I will definitely be back. Several entrances to the park, lots of friendly squirrels (bring some nuts or something, cracking pictures guaranteed).
