  • Dean castle is a great place to spend a few hours, there's so much to see and do. Theres lots of animals around the park, a great playground and a good cafe. Cant wait until the castle reopens...

  • What a beautiful place. Sadly, the kids park was out of bounds when we visited, but there was still plenty to keep us interested. I'm on crutches, and really had to walk a lot (too much actually) after parking the car. It would be useful if we could maybe hire disability scooters? The disabled toilet was impressive, with a hoist & shower, and changing table for larger kids/adults. The wee cafe is quite reasonably priced which we appreciated. We'd definitely recommend a visit, esp on a dry day! Take some bird seed, or grapes for ducks. ❤
  • It was a fantastic sunny day and we thought we would go a walk to Dean Park. On arrival we went to the cafe for lunch and a drink which was excellent. We then left the cafe to go on our adventure, seeing the animals, playing in the park which was clean and tidy, having lots of fun in the process. Will definitely be back keep up the great work everyone. Thank you.
