Eliburn Park is a 16.5 hectare Council owned site located in Eliburn, Livingston. This diverse recreational area contains a range of environments including a scenic reservoir surrounded by woodland with extensive walking routes to explore and a wonderfully designed play park.
The pitches and associated pavilion are leased by Livingston FC Community Club who currently cater for around 200 local school aged children. Please contact the club directly via their 'Livingston FC Community Club' Facebook page about the use of these facilities.
A little to the east, across a footbridge over Neil Burn, is an adventure play area for children. Inspired by the spiral form of a nautilus shell, this nature themed play area uses the shape of spirals throughout the design elements of the park. Perhaps the main attraction of this fabulous area of greenspace is the Eliburn Reservoir which sits centrally within the parks boundary.
Eliburn Reservoir is actually a four acre coarse fishery which contains an assortment of different coarse fish species. This, plus the picturesque scenery on offer, makes it an attractive destination for anglers. Day tickets are available on site from a warden.
Surrounding this beautiful reservoir is woodland with an abundance of footpaths which promote exploration and also provide access to and around the reservoir. Farmland was once the main land use in the area and the current woodland was formed from the shelterbelts that surrounded the fields.
Now peaceful woodland routes provide an ideal environment for activities such as walking and running. What's more, the woodland paths are invaluable for the links they provide to the wider path system in Livingston, including National Cycle Route 75 to the south. The park strikes a balance between delivering both superb amenity value and helping to aid nature conservation.
