Stirling's biggest and best used park has a good range of equipment. Very busy when the weather is good. The play area in Stirling’s historic Kings Park, has been brought into the 21st Century with the installation of new state-of-the-art features including the new play area which will boast a number of fun features including a tower/bridge/slide embankment unit, climbing wall, bicycle roundabout, aerial runway and landscape improvements to existing features.
There's plenty of space to run around and places to explore around the golf course but look out for low flying golf balls. If there were more parks like this, there would be no need for cheap flights and for travelling abroad. Follow the footpath up the hill past the skate park. There are good views from the park, over the fine Victorian houses of the King's Park Area and to the castle on the skyline.
