Are you a Leaf Peeper? There are lots of place in #Fife where you can enjoy the Autumn colours including some great spaces in our towns and villages. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Pittencrieff Park in Dunfermline – beautiful all year round but particularly colourful at this time, the Glen as it’s known locally is a leaf peepers delight. Enjoy the majestic trees and wide-open spaces or dip down into the Japanese Garden and the Tower Burn area for a riot of colour.
Riverside Park in Glenrothes – a bit of a hidden gem, very close to the centre of town. There are lovely woodland walks plus a formal garden and pond. Look out too for the artworks which are part of the town’s impressive Town Art collection.
Beveridge Park in Kirkcaldy – a lovely green space which dates back to Victorian times. There are wide sweeping paths lined by grand old trees plus a wetland area with boardwalk which attracts all sorts of wildlife.
Silverburn Park in Leven – in a wonderful location just off the Fife Coastal Path, Silverburn has undergone a huge transformation over the past few years. There are lots of spaces to explore and and there’s even a campsite if you want to stay a bit longer.
Haugh Park in Cupar – a historic park right in the entre of town. The River Eden flows through the park and there is a tree lined walkway along the river, otters have been seen during the day in the river. The name Cupar is Pictish and means where the two rivers meet and the park is situated where these two rivers meet.
St Andrews Botanic Garden – a beautiful and peaceful place to visit. There is lots to see over the 18 acre site including a rock garden, rhododendron glade, pond, pinetum and of course lots of trees! The garden is home to lots of wildlife too including red squirrels, and a great variety of birds and insects too.
