Jenny's Well

Unique among Paisley's parks, Jenny's Well is a nature reserve along the White Cart Water—a peaceful haven for wildlife not far from the centre of town.

Formerly a quarry, the area has now been landscaped and has a network of paths.

The reserve is home to dozens of species of birds, trees, flowers, orchids, even otters and eels in the White Cart River.

There are plenty of benches to sit and have a picnic. If you're lucky, you might even see a kingfisher by the river.

Whatever time of year you visit, make sure you spend a little time on the viewing platform overlooking the River Cart.

You can also see the viaduct bridge which carries the Paisley Canal railway line over the river. The bridge was built in 1806; it was designed by famous civil engineer Thomas Telford.
