Dalkeith Country Park is a truly special place. Only 5 miles from Edinburgh city centre, you'll find Fort Douglas play park, Restoration Yard cafe and store, special activities and events, plus waymarked walking and cycling routes.
Opened in July 2016, the brand new Dalkeith Country Park is an experience unlike any other. You'll find the magical new Fort Douglas play park alongside Restoration Yard, a gorgeous new store and cafe in the former stableyard which has been lovingly restored to create a truly special day out.
There's also the wider park to explore with waymarked walking and cycling trails to suit the whole family and special events too. Explore the Old Oak Wood with trees over 900 years old, enjoy a picnic in one of the areas we've created, or simply breathe in the fresh air of this beautiful country park, which you'll find hard to believe is just a few miles from Edinburgh's city centre.
