Welcome to Lochore Meadows Country Park

Situated in the heart of Fife, Lochore Meadows Country Park has over 1,200 acres to explore! It’s a great place to visit with a wide range of leisure and recreational activities that cater for all the family. With a beautiful loch at the heart of the park, you can enjoy spending time walking, bird-watching, cycling, fishing, paddling, playing in the playpark or enjoying a picnic or barbecue with friends and family. We even have a beach! Lochore Meadows boats an incredible variety of habitats including wildflower meadows, park land and ancient woodlands. Much of the park is suitable for wheelchairs and buggies and we also provide all terrain mobility scooters for hire to help you explore. Lots of events take place in the park throughout the year too – check out what’s planned here. Come and see for yourself why we’re Fife’s most popular free outdoor attraction!

Entrances

There are two main entrances into Lochore Meadows Country Park.

The first entrance is found on the main road leading through the village of Crosshill, situated between Lochgelly and Benarty. Signage will direct you along the main driveway leading into the park.

The other main entrance is situated just off the Great North Road in Kelty. It’s a one mile walk into the park from here.

Travelling by car

If you’re using sat nav to get you here, our postcode is KY5 8BA.
Free parking and disabled parking is available in the large car parks next to the visitor centre and the Outdoor Education centre.
A smaller free car park at the North Road entrance is also available from which you can walk into the park along a path which will lead you around the loch.

Travelling by public transport

If you are traveling by public transport, you can journey plan with Traveline Scotland.

The local Stagecoach bus numbers 20 and 20A buses come into the heart of the park several times a day, Mondays to Saturdays. There’s a bus stop outside our visitor centre and it saves you having to make the walk along the long driveway.

If the walk isn't a problem, the number 19 bus also passes the main entrance to the park up to every ten minutes. You can download the timetables from the Stagecoach website.
