Zetland Park was gifted by the Earl of Zetland (Shetland) to the people of Grangemouth in 1880. Today the park is the principal open space serving Grangemouth and is the green oasis at the heart of this busy industrial town. The Grange Burn flows alongside the park.
The park is well connected to all local neighbourhoods. Local amenities including Grangemouth Sports Complex, Grangemouth Stadium and Grangemouth Town Centre are also nearby.
