Castlebank Park in Lanark is one of Scotland’s 71 Green Flag Parks. Free to visit, the park is open to the public all year and is very popular with families, dog walkers and nature enthusiasts. The park features beautiful garden areas, a Wildflower & Tree Trail, picnic benches, children’s play area and Horticulture Centre. The park is situated near the former site of Lanark Castle where the Sheriff of Lanark was slain by William Wallace in revenge for the murder of Marion Braidfute in 1297.
Castlebank Park is a local landmark that has been the subject of several restoration projects in recent years. Since 2012, Lanark Community Development Trust have been working to restore the park and establish Castlebank Horticultural Centre. Our aim is for the centre become an educational and training asset for the local community.
