Since 2012, we have been working to restore the jewel in Lanark’s crown – Castlebank Park. Our aim is for the Castlebank Horticultural Centre to become an educational and training asset for the local community.

Castlebank Park is now 1 of Scotland’s 71 Green Flag Parks and as well as welcoming visitors all year round, plays hosts to large-scale community events such as FlowerFest and celebrations during Lanimer Week.
