Come and join us.


meeting copyDo you have an interest in Plean Country Park? If so you are invited to join us on Tuesday 20th March in the Balfour Centre in Plean between 7-9pm where we are holding our bi-monthly general meeting of the Friends of Plean Country Park.

It is a chance for you to keep up to date with issues concerning the park and to raise any ideas you may have.
Please come along, it would be great to see some new faces.



As many regular visitors are aware the main gates to the park have been closed since last Wednesday evening.
Land Services staff have this week accessed the park for operational requirements and have been working hard to fulfill the Council’s main priorities. They have to keep the public adopted roads network flowing, get snowbound roads reopened, clear public footways in communities, get schools reopened, ensure burials can take place and reopen public car parks serving businesses available across the Council area. All recreational parks are having to wait until all the Council’s main priorities have been addressed.
It is hoped however that the car park at PCP will be cleared later today which will mean the gates can be opened

Take Care - Contractors in the Park


Contractors at Work and Path Closures

men at workAs part of the Beauly - Denny pylon mitigation works contractors are at work in a number of areas in the Park. They are improving the surfaces and as a result various paths will be closed for safety reasons until work is completed.

Look out for and obey any signage you see in the Park.

This work is creating a durable and accessible route through the Park as part of a new continuous  path network connecting the Eastern Villages. Surfaces will be upgraded and drainage improved, leading to a much better experience in the Park, especially during the winter months.

Please Don't Do This!

Inconsiderate parking can cause real safety issues

cars blocking gateway

The other evening a total of four cars were parked at the gateway to the North Drive, totally blocking the entrance - see above. People park here in the evening if they are going to be in the park after the gate closure time (currently 9:00pm).

It is extremely important that this access is kept clear - it is the only access to the interior of the park for emergency vehicles. If anyone has an accident or falls ill in the park at any time of the day or night this entrance will allow ambulance access to all the roadways within the park.

ND access Notice

Will drivers please ensure that they obey the signage on the gate and park considerately allowing free access to the entrance gate.
