Macrosty Park

A picturesque public park in Crieff, Macrosty Park lies on the course of the Turret Burn a quarter-mile (0.5 km) northwest of the town centre. Opened in 1902, to celebrate the Coronation of King Edward VII, it is named after its benefactor, James Macrosty, who had been the Provost of Crieff. The park includes a fine collection of mature trees, a children's play are and a number of picnic tables. An unusual B-listed cast-iron bandstand was gifted by James Macrosty's brother. Constructed in 1907, it was the work of the Elmbank Foundry in Glasgow. An old mill lade also runs through the park. The decorative gates on Comrie Road are C-listed.
