Based around two adjoining estates (Almondell and Calderwood) and with a history going back 340 million years to the time of the Carboniferous swamps, this area has much to offer its visitors.

Left undeveloped and unspoilt, Calderwood is a complete contrast to Almondell. This natural woodland, located on a plateau bounded by the Linhouse and Murieston Waters, is home to a wealth of wildlife. Roe deer, fox, heron and woodpecker all make their homes here, while the many oak and hazel trees provide food for the squirrels and wood mice. For this reason Calderwood has been designated a Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI).

There are a number of walking routes, many of them waymarked. Mapped routes can be obtained from the Visitor Centre. The Park is also suitable for horse riding and cycling with a tarmac road running through Almondell and access to National Cycle Route 75. A play area for toddlers and juniors is situated beside the Visitor Centre.
