Station Park and Boating Pond

Situated in idyllic surroundings, Station Park provides activities for all the family. The park boasts attractive gardens, a boating lake, a 9-hole putting green and a one of a kind interactive water feature called Moffatasia, where children can play all day between the splashes and squirts while parents relax and take in the surroundings.

The boating lake is a real favourite - there's a wide variety of boats available, from kayaks and rowing boats to swan pedalos and the famous Fernando the Dragon Pedalo.

There are plans to redevelop the park, starting with new play area for young children which will be installed in late Summer 2014. Other changes to the pond, the pavilion and the water feature as well as a play area for older children will be in place in 2015.

You'll find Station Park on the A701 Beattock Road as you head into Moffat from the motorway roundabouts. There is a free car park opposite the park with a traffic-light controlled pedestrian crossing to take you safely across the road.

If you or your youngsters love skateboarding, you'll find a well-maintained half-pipe In nearby Hope Johnstone Park at the northern end of Moffat. Hope Johnstone Park also has a range of safe play equipment for younger children.

Station Park is open throughout the year. Opening times for Moffatasia, the boating lake and the putting green can be found in the What's On Guide.
