All ranger-hosted events are free while those delivered by others may involve a registration or entry fee.
Book your kids into our free fun-filled 'Boggy Beasties' summer club and keep them active through the summer.
The club is for 6 year olds and above and runs every Wednesday from 10.30am to 12pm for 6 weeks during the summer holidays.
Children can be left for some activities at or near the visitor centre, but should otherwise be accompanied by an adult.
Please note, spaces are limited. To book contact the Countryside Rangers.
Our 2020 Boggy Beasties Club was cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions. We hope to run Boggy Beasties sessions in summer 2021.
Muddy Monsters is our pre-school club for children between 2 to 5 years old and their adults.
The aim of the group is to get young children and their adults outside enjoying nature through games, stories and play with each session covering a different theme.
The group meet on the second Thursday of each month from 1pm to 2pm at the Whitelee Visitor Centre.
Our Muddy Monsters Club has been postponed until further notice due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Our Stroller Striders sessions have been postponed until further notice due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Whitelee Stroller Striders is a popular walking group for expectant and new parents as well as family members, friends and well behaved dogs. The walk is a great way to meet other parents and get some healthy exercise.
Where and when to meet
The group meets at 10am every Tuesday morning come rain or shine next to the large threshold map at the main entrance to the windfarm just down from the visitor centre.
The group normally sets off around 10.15am, allowing everyone time to arrive and get their babies in their strollers.
On average the group are back at the visitor centre between 11.30am - noon, with the walk taking approximately 1.5 hours.
From the visitor centre one of the Countryside Rangers will take the group a walk, acting as guide for the group as well as providing first-aid cover and assistance when needed.
The group heads along the windfarm tracks for approximately 2 miles to turbine 56 before returning to the Whitelee Visitor Centre, where you can stop for a coffee and well earned rest.
Depending on the weather, the Ranger may make a number of checks to make sure everyone is happy to continue walking.
New members are always welcome and no booking is needed. However, we do ask youso that we've got your contact details in case we need to cancel for any reason.
From December to February, when the visitor centre is closed, the Strollers go 'on location' visiting the partners of the Whitelee Countryside Ranger Service in Rouken Glen, Calderglen and Dean Castle.
Before the closure of the visitor centre for the winter, a tour programme is produced showing the routes and where and when the group will be at each park over the winter.
