Dalkeith Country Park is a truly special place. Only 5 miles from Edinburgh city centre, Dalkeith Country Park is your great centre for a fun family day out.
When you enter the Park, you'll feel a million miles away from Edinburgh's busy city centre.You and your family can re-charge your batteries in the quiet of this picturesque 500 acre woodland. Bluebell walks, riverside trails, cycle tracks and picnic areas offer a great chance to have a day out.
From summer 2016 you'll find even more at the Park. We're launching the magical new Fort Douglas playground alongside the brand new Restoration Yard, a place for eating, shopping and relaxation. You'll find cafes with only the best locally sourced, seasonal produce, coffee, tea and cakes, plus a brand new retail experience and wellness loft.
