Ormiston Park

Ormiston Park stretches along most of the south side of the historic village of Ormiston in East Lothian, approximately 4.87 hectares in area and bordered by the River Tyne. The site for Ormiston Park was handed to the Tranent District Council in 1936 by The Marquess of Linlithgow to provide a recreation ground for miners and their dependants.
The successful regeneration of Ormiston Park over recent years now attracts visitors from far and wide. The new children’s play park, installed in 2018, is extremely popular, with a multitude of play equipment for all ages in a safe environment, fenced off from the road.
The park also boasts woodland areas with winding paths with lots of nature to explore. Take a walk along the paths around the perimeter of the park then have a seat on a bench to enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
For sport lovers, Ormiston Football Club play regular matches on the new football pitch with adjacent Sports Pavilion, at the west end of Ormiston Park. Facilities in the centre of the park include the ever-popular concrete surfaced Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA), skate ramps, flying fox and an informal 7-a-side football pitch.
There is a large free car park adjacent to the sports pavilion, offering easy access into the park. Blue Badge parking is sited next to Ormiston Library, which is open part-time and welcomes any borrowers with an East Lothian Library card.
Ormiston Park has something for everyone – truly a ‘Destination Park’!
