Ravenscraig Park is a well-loved destination for many Fifers and people from across central Scotland. The Park exists for the benefit of the local community and Fife Council is keen to encourage all members of the community to use the park, and feel they have an opportunity to link into the future developments within park.
Ravenscraig Park, along with many other Victorian parks, was bequeathed by local benefactors to help improve the living conditions for workers in the new industrialised towns and cities. Urban parks and other green spaces have been valued ever since as an important part of our landscape and as a recreational facility for the local community.
The park already attracts a wide range of events. These events range in size and complexity, from simple sponsored walks with 40 participants to events managed by national organisations attracting up to 1000 plus visitors
Fife Coastal path is a major tourist attraction that runs throughout the park, with its rugged walks giving views of Kirkcaldy, the Forth estuary and the Lothians. The park has a good path network which runs around the whole park. There is access to Pathhead Sands and Ravenscraig beach from the park.
A major investment in the cycle route now links Ravenscraig Park with the main cycle routes which network Kirkcaldy. Cycle routes are marked at the East and West entrance.
Ravenscraig Park continues to be awarded Green Flag award for Parks.
