South Park Wood is on the south side of the River Tweed. The map covers two wooded hills and neighbouring fields, and also land on the north side of the river, including Hay Lodge Park. The woods have a variety of trees including larch, Scots pine, Norway spruce, Douglas fir, birch and some sycamore, beech and oak. Interesting features include a disused railway line (the Peebles branch line of the Caledonian Railway), the Neidpath Viaduct and tunnel, as well as Neidpath Castle, dating back to the 14th Century, on the north bank of the river.
