Weehailes Playpark

Weehailes, our adventure play park, has been specially developed for younger children and is themed on the Newhailes story. Inspired by the story of the house and its important role in the Scottish Enlightenment, the play park has a book-related theme centred around the ‘library’, complete with stained glass windows. Turrets, slides and high-level walkways provide lots of opportunities for children to explore and have fun!

The play area is designed for children aged 3–12 but children aged 0–15 are admitted.

We’ve also extended Weehailes for 2022, adding new swings, a seesaw and a roundabout.

  • All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult aged 16 or over.
  • An adult can supervise up to 6 children.
  • We can admit a maximum of 2 adults per child.

Please note that you no longer need to book in advance!


Weehailes operates a quiet hour from 10–11am on a Saturday and Sunday morning, where we limit the number of people to 30 in the park at any one time.

You can book ahead for one of these sessions.
