Escape to the Countryside
Located on the west edge of the historic burgh of Forfar, visitors can escape to the countryside yet be only a five to ten minute walk from town centre facilities.
The 4 kilometre (2½ mile) path around Forfar Loch is suitable for all abilities and forms part of the wider Forfar Path Network. Kingfisher, otter, fox and roe deer are among the regularly spotted park residents. Look out for fishing osprey during the summer.
Rangers run two year-round nature clubs for children. For pre-school children the Little Acorns meet fortnightly. For ages 5 years and over Junior Rangers meet twice a month.
