About the Park

Standburn Community Park belongs to a charity run by the residents of Standburn. They are all volunteers who maintain the park and raise funds to keep it in good condition. The park is a 28.5 hectare community woodland adjacent to the village of Standburn which lies to the southeast of Falkirk previously used for mining. From the mid fifties until 1990 the area was used for grazing cattle. The site was identified by Central Scotland Forest Trust in 1992 as having potential for nature conservation and community use. Due to the poor grazing value of the land the owner suggested some form of village park or community woodland, with a view to future management by the community and so Drumbowie Environment Action Group, the charity, was born.

We always welcome any help or support. You could become a member of our group or provide a donation if you're a regular park visitor. For information on all the ways you can become involved please contact us.
