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, an 18-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.

New for 2014 is a childrens' play park - and there are lots of new developments planned over the next few months with changes to the pond, the pavilion and the water feature as well as a play area for older children.

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.
