Barshaw Park

At 55 acres, Barshaw Park is the biggest of the formal parks in Paisley.

Facilities include a pond used by model boat enthusiasts, an outdoor gym, children’s play areas, BMX park, crazy golf and putting (seasonal), peaceful walled gardens, a nature corner, café, fantastic miniature railway (seasonal), and its very own golf club.

The park is ideal for a morning jog, family picnic, and if the sun is out, a perfect spot for sunbathing. Barshaw Park caters for all and also has wheelchair accessible swings.

For all you budding golfers out there wanting to take in a quick back nine, or those looking to try out the sport for the first time, Barshaw Golf Course provides the perfect setting filled with challenges, good fun and beautiful surroundings.
