The road to the car park near Balvormie Play Area will be closed to allow for tree felling - please use other car parks. It is only a 5-10minute walk to the play area from the new car park at Hillhouse car park. Please see park map posters for directions. Beecraigs Tree Felling Work (May 2022)

Some of the trees along the roads and around the park have become severely affected by Ash Dieback Disease and need to be felled / pruned. This disease only affects ash trees but is likely to lead to the death of many of these over the coming years. Further information on Ash Dieback Disease.
