Breadalbane Park

In the heart of this small, rural village lies Breadalbane Park. Originally the field was gifted to the village by the Breadalbane Estate, so the community could hold large events. Annually the Park hosts the Killin Highland Games, the Killin Agricultural Show and several other large events, to this end a large swathe of the park has been left untouched although the moveable goalposts can be located here when needed.
The Park, in its position adjacent to the McLaren Hall and the Killin Sports Pavilion, is instrumental in providing a compliment of indoor and outdoor facilities both for the villagers as well as for the visitors on whom the local economy depends. The Park provides a space for freeplay as well as organised activities like the Primary school daily mile. In conjunction with the Hall, the Park provides a safe area for the start and finish of several running events.
In recent years the Friends of Breadalbane Park have organised and implemented the updating of the drainage system which has made the area more user friendly. Planting fruit trees and a wildflower meadow and benches and picnic tables enrich the visitor experience. The circular walk, is well used and, amongst others, the local Residential Home can take their residents out for walks around the Park. The playpark area at present services the under 8 age group, now they are looking to expand the playpark area, and in consultation with local groups, are working hard to update the playpark provision for older children.
