Wilton Lodge Park

Parks & Gardens

Wilton Lodge Park, Hawick, Roxburghshire, TD9 7JL

    A variety of activities are available at beautiful Wilton Lodge Park, where you can enjoy gorgeous Scottish Borders scenery.

    Award-winning Wilton Lodge Park is one of the most picturesque town parks in Scotland, with its tree lined walks, river, waterfall, formal gardens, museum, glass house and walled gardens.

    In spring there are extensive areas of daffodils, narcissi and flowering trees, and in autumn the gold and russets of the trees are a must. Take a walk through the Violet Woods, joining the park at the western side which continues onto the riverside walks (distance approximately 2000 m).

    Bowling, putting, crazy golf and a café are all available.

    Within the park is a statue commemorating the life of Steve Hislop (Hizzy), the local motorcycling champion who rose to world fame but had his life tragically cut short in 2003. Steve Hislop claimed the British Superbike title in 1995 and 2002, also won 11 races at the Isle of Man TT.
