The country park lies to the south of the town of Paisley on the Gleniffer and Brownside Braes. It is approximately 480 acres in area, three miles long and one mile wide. It is an upland park, mainly of moorland but it also has woodland parts and hill farming areas.
Cattle are used in the Country Park to control the vegetation, preserve biodiversity and retain the wide open spaces which visitors enjoy. Cattle are currently grazing at Brownside Braes, Glenburn Reservoir and Sergeantlaw areas of the park. Please check Renfrewshire Council's web page for up to date information of where the cattle are grazing. Please see advisory information attached outlining areas within the park which are free of cattle and what to do if you have a dog with you.
