There are many routes that you are able to walk whilst visiting Castle Park. On this occasion we parked at Penrith train station car park, just off Ullswater Road, and walked the very short distance to the park.
Route 1: this 0.4 mile walk is pram accessible and a lovely walk for those with little legs. The route walks around the bandstand passing crazy golf and the children’s play area.
Route 2: A 0.6 mile walk around the perimeter of the park taking in the beautiful scenery. There are a few steps to navigate at the beginning of this walk making access difficult for wheelchairs and pushchairs. Full access is available at the main entrance to the park on Ullswater Road. You are able to enjoy the delights of Penrith Castle during this stroll through the park. The castle offers a fantastic opportunity for little ones to use their imagination, explore some local history and learn a few interesting facts along the way!
Castle Park is a wonderful green space for families of all ages. Whether you fancy a round of crazy golf, a climb on the park, a quick game of tennis or an explore of the castle ruins, this park really does have fun for the whole family to enjoy!
