Parks, gardens and open spaces
There are 126 parks in Fife, and our major parks such as Pittencrieff Park in Dunfermline, Riverside Park in Glenrothes, Craigtoun Park in St. Andrews and Beveridge Park in Kirkcaldy offer a range of amenities including boating ponds, bouncy castles, bowling greens, football pitches, play areas, putting greens and tennis courts.
Balbirnie Park in Markinch boasts a remarkable rhododendron collection, an exotic tree collection and beautiful woodland walks. The Botanic Garden in St Andrews is one of the town's hidden gems. You can stroll by sheltered paths through large plantings of trees and shrubs; enjoy the ponds, waterfall, rock garden and glasshouses.
