As part of the Parks for People project to revamp the Park, the Urban Farm will receive a makeover that celebrates all that is special about Rural Life in Ayrshire. The Field Centre will house a Discovery Room and Rural Life Centre with interactive exhibits exploring how we can manage the Park for the benefit of animals, plants, birds and people. The Urban Farm itself will become a Rare Breeds Centre preserving traditional British breeds of farm animals, many of which are no longer used in modern intensive agriculture.
In the Park today you can see our Fallow deer herd and young fawns, Hebridean sheep and lambs, Pygmy goats and kid and our Eriskay ponies. While the Urban farm is going through its redevelopment, you can only reach the animals paddocks via the longer Countryside Trail.
