About Strathaven Park

Strathaven Park Glasgow Road, Strathaven ML10 6LZ

Strathaven Park Website

John Hastie Park which stretches from the town towards the bowling and putting greens also includes two football pitches and tennis courts. The George Allan Park has a boating pond, a miniature railway, which was laid out by the Strathaven Model Railway Society in 1949, and an ornate cast-iron bandstand installed in 1902.

Strathaven Park boasts open spaces and lovely flower beds and the Powmillon burn is an attractive feature flowing on its way to meet the River Avon.

The Park is well worth a visit, and through the summer you can enjoy boating on the pond, a railway journey and lots of fun on the putting green, and plenty of space to relax and appreciate the open space. During the summer the Park is used for the Strathaven Gala celebrations, including the famous Duck Race down the burn and in August is the venue for the annual Balloon Festival.

Car parking is ample and is mainly concentrated at the north end of the George Allan Park and limited parking can be had off the main road opposite the Ballgreen Hall.
