Castledykes Park, now known as the Dock Park since it underwent a massive regeneration in April 2014, is a great children's play area set within picturesque grounds. A range of other activities are also available whatever your age, including tennis, bowling, putting and trampolining!

The park is landscaped, and contains an interesting sunken garden that used to be an old quarry, and was the source of the sandstone for the Mid Steeple. It is also the site of a former castle for Robert the Bruce, and there is a sandstone plaque marking the spot!

Kids will love the play park and the maze, and everyone will love the range of other activities available. There is also a bandstand and a Pavilion (which has toilets!), plus a café to enjoy. This a great place for outdoor fun throughout the year, as it is only a short walk from the centre of town, plus it is set beside the beautiful river Nith, and there are picnic areas! You can even bring the family pooch with you, and there are plenty of bins available to make it easy to clear up after them.
