Welcome to Eglinton Country Park 

Spring, summer, autumn and winter - the beauty of Eglinton Country Park is on your doorstep!

Immersed in a rich history, our Country Park gives you space and freedom to enjoy a wide range of pursuits. The area is crisscrossed with paths and bridleways which allow you to get closer to the natural world. Our Ranger Service has a busy programme of events tailored to young people and their families. Children will also love our All-Abilities Play Park and after the fun you can enjoy home-made snacks and a drink in the tea room.  

Complete our Eglinton Country Park Survey for a chance to win a Kindle!

We are working very hard to improve Eglinton Country Park, and we want to understand what you, our Park users, feel needs to be done.
