A beautiful, open park offering many play areas for children, making the Dumbarton-based Levengrove an ideal day out for the entire family.
Stretching all the way to the shores of the Clyde, the park overlooks the nearby Dumbarton Rock and its resident Iron Age castle. The striking rock formation is the plug of a volcanic basalt, which is around 240 ft high. Most famously, the castle was once used to briefly imprison William Wallace during the Wars of Independence.
Formal flower gardens and many magnificent trees can be found in Levengrove. The park also contains the ruins of the old parish church and burial place of the Dixon family, who were prolific makers of crown glass, the staple trade of Dumbarton during the early 19th century.
A children's play area, putting green, crazy golf, bowling green and tennis courts are also available.
