The play area was refreshed in 2019 and contains a fantastic mix of equipment for different ages including many assessable play items. The play area is open 8.30 to 5pm in winter and 8.30 – 7.30pm in summer. Nearby are toilets, a kiosk selling refreshments and the summer activities.


Natural Play Trail

Natural play is an important part of the community facilities within Callendar Park. The trail was funded by the Robert Barr trust and Falkirk Environment Trust with support from the Falkirk Common Good Fund, Link Housing and Falkirk Community Trust.

The trail is there for everyone to use in whatever imaginative way they wish. You can play on the equipment alone or with friends and family and create your own fun games as you go around. Keep your eyes peeled for our Roman Snails and also for the magical woodland doors hidden round the route.
