There are two main entrances into Lochore Meadows Country Park.

The first entrance is found on the main road leading through the village of Crosshill, situated between Lochgelly and Benarty. Signage will direct you along the main driveway leading into the park.

The other main entrance is situated just off the Great North Road in Kelty. It’s a one mile walk into the park from here.

Travelling by car

If you’re using sat nav to get you here, our postcode is KY5 8BA.
Free parking and disabled parking is available in the large car parks next to the visitor centre and the Outdoor Education centre.
A smaller free car park at the North Road entrance is also available from which you can walk into the park along a path which will lead you around the loch.

Travelling by public transport

If you are traveling by public transport, you can journey plan with Traveline Scotland.

The local Stagecoach bus numbers 20 and 20A buses come into the heart of the park several times a day, Mondays to Saturdays. There’s a bus stop outside our visitor centre and it saves you having to make the walk along the long driveway.

If the walk isn't a problem, the number 19 bus also passes the main entrance to the park up to every ten minutes. You can download the timetables from the Stagecoach website.

Lochgelly train station is around 1.6 miles away.

Lochside Café

Stop by the Lochside Café, offering lovely views across the loch and is open 7 days, offering hot and cold food and drinks.

Toilet facilities

Toilets are available 8am - 6pm (summer months) and 8.30am - 4pm (winter months), 7 days a week in the Willie Clarke Visitor Centre.

Mobility scooters

We have mobility scooters that can be hired for free. Please call us in advance to check availability and book - 01592 583343.


The park is full of wildlife but we would ask visitors not to feed the ducks and swans at the beach so they don't wander around the picnic areas.

If you are feeding them elsewhere, please consider alternatives to bread. We have swan and duck food available to purchase from the Visitor Centre reception. Our famous Ferdinand the Goose will be most appreciative!
