Parks and green spaces
Whether it's one of our 8 major parks or one of the many areas of green space in and around our settlements, these open spaces are managed for the enjoyment of residents and visitors, as well as for the variety of wildlife that depend on them.
Our larger parks offer a range of attractions for all ages and are great places to host events and leisure activities. There are eight major parks which, due to their facilities and location, attract visitors from far and near. You can view a map of these parks or browse the links below:
Perth & Kinross Council administers an events funding scheme to which organisers can apply to in order to gain some financial support towards the staging or marketing of their event.
With more than 1,400 acres of parks and public spaces in and around Perth and Kinross, there is an abundance of choice for those wishing to organise an outdoor event.
Perthshire offers many opportunities to get out and enjoy the outdoors, to walk, cycle, ride or paddle down rivers or sail around lochs. The countryside is also a home and workplace to people and wildlife and it is important that we understand our responsibilities and behave in a way which does not cause damage or annoyance to others.
With fine view across Strathearn and towards Ben Chonzie, situated within an exceptionally picturesque landscape, MacRosty Park has been an attraction for over 100 years.
