Monikie Country Park

Monikie Country Park, with its reservoirs, woodland and parkland, is an ideal location for a visit to the countryside. The scenic surroundings offer many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors at any time of the year. The 'Old Park' is a popular attraction for picnickers and is an ideal area for ball games. Permanent orienteering and other trails are open on a daily basis.

The Country Park is registered with the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority and is licensed to carry out watersports instruction. Hire and instruction are offered in windsurfing, sailing and canoeing between May and September. Craft, equipment and changing rooms with hot showers are provided.

The former reservoirs are ideal habitat for a variety of birds and aquatic life. At Denfind Sanctuary is a hide where nesting and feeding birds can be closely observed. The woodlands are home to the red squirrel, stoat and many birds. Fly fishing takes place through the Monikie Angling Club - the ponds are stocked with brown and rainbow trout.
