Clare Castle Country Park Trust is an independent charitable trust that administers the Park of the same name. The Park is a beautiful quiet area to relax, play, get close to nature and learn about Clare’s fascinating history and heritage. It is also the start point for most of our walks
The Park contains the remains of the 13th Century stone castle keep set upon its 60ft high motte overlooking the Town, as well as its inner and outer baileys which are ideal areas for recreation and picnics. The inner bailey also contains the former railway station, which now houses the Platform One Cafe and the former Goods Shed (now Clare Park Centre). Platform One Cafe serves hot drinks and food throughout the year.
Away from the open green areas visitors can find the footpaths through the trees, along the banks of the River Stour and the old railway line. Here a variety of trees and plant life can be viewed, with information boards showing the various birds and water life which can be seen along the waters’ edge. Find out more about the Park …….
