Almswall Park

A public green space in Kilwinning (North Ayrshire), Almswall Park is situated a quarter-mile (0.4 km) southeast of the town centre. The park comprises areas of grass, woodland and an astroturf football pitch, with the Ayrshire Coastal Path running along the right bank of the River Garnock on its eastern margin.

The park was developed on reclaimed industrial land, which had contained spoil heaps from the nearby Eglinton Iron Works and officially opened by author and broadcaster Tom Weir (1914 - 2006). The spoil was removed to build the Hunterston Terminal at Fairlie. Almswall Park is now run by KA Leisure, a charitable company, on behalf of its owners North Ayrshire Council.
