posted January 31st 2019
- Open 24/7 with free facilities available all year round
- Seasonal paid attractions from Easter to October holidays
With free entry, free parking and on-site café, Craigtoun really is the ideal place for a family day out. Situated in 47 acres of well-maintained grounds, just 2 miles from St Andrews, the park is open all year round and visitors can enjoy free facilities such as the adventure playground, trampolines, Fairy Glen, trim trail and a 30ft zip wire.
Our Seasonal Paid Attractions are supervised by staff and volunteers and operate on selected dates between the school Easter holidays and the October holidays. These include the Rio Grande Miniature Railway and Puffin’ Billy tractor rides, boating, putting, crazy golf, bouncy castles and pedal cars. Day bands and season passes are available for unlimited use.
The Craigtoun Café serves a selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks and a variety of scooping ice cream and ice lollies. Daily specials, kids’ menus and allergen friendly options are all available. At peak times we also have a Snack Shack open at the Bouncy Castle area.
The Craigtoun Picnic Hut is available to hire for private parties and social group outings and we’ll even produce a specially tailored letter trail to keep your party occupied. Events can be self-catered or packages are available from the Craigtoun Café.
During the season we operate a series of Event Days which are great fun for all the family.
