Autumn in the Park - bring the family!

New animals in the park
A variety of animals have arrived at the park and some of them have made their first public appearance.
One by one they are taking up position on a route from the car park onto the north drive in one direction and in the other direction towards the south drive and Plean House.
The children's play area is where most of them congregate and make an ideal photo opportunity. A few of our new friends are pictured here but please come to the park and see all of them for yourself.
IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL PARK USERS
Act Responsibly When Using The Park
This is a reminder to all visitors to be aware of and take into consideration other users when enjoying the park.
Plean Country Park is used for many outdoor pursuits including walking with and without dogs, horse riding, running and cycling.
Sometimes these activities do not mix well. Recently there was an unfortunate incident in the park where a horse was startled by a dog resulting in the rider being thrown to the ground and the horse bolting onto the public road. Luckily no major injury resulted and the horse was recovered safely. The consequences could have been very much more serious.
Animal and bike owners have a special responsibility to ensure that they are in control and do not to cause upset or injury to other park users. In areas of dense vegetation always be aware of the possibility of sudden encounters with other users be they dog walkers, cyclists or horse riders. It is much more of an issue on the bings now that the trees have grown up and enclosed the pathways – dogs do tend to 'pop out' from nowhere.
