Explore the Park
Dean Castle Country Park has over 7km of trails to explore.
From formal designed landscapes of parkland lime trees and ornamental pines, through native woodland dwarfed by great oaks to open farm land surrounded by grazing horses and buzzing hedgerows, the Countryside trail lets you experience the different landscapes and habitats that we have to offer.
The path network involves a few strenuous climbs and some steps. The trails can be walked in their entirety or in bite sized sections to suit. Call in at the Visitor Centre for a trail map and advice on the best route to take or download the park map below.
As you walk the trail you can look out for the exciting steps we are taking to make the countryside even better for visitors and wildlife.
Whether planting wildflower meadows, planting new woodlands and hedgerows or creating new ponds we are working hard to make our Park even better for wildlife.
If you’re passing by and see us at work please don’t hesitate to ask us about what we’re doing. We’ll be more than happy to tell you all about it
