Chance to go loopy at Cuningar park facility
The new £ 5.7million woodland park facility at Cuningar Loop in Rutherglen will be open to the public every weekend until December 6.
Following the success of the come and try events throughout August and September, the public will be able to enjoy the attractions on offer from 10am until 4pm each weekend.
Visitors can try out the Activity Zone which features a bike skills park, bouldering park, adventure play and woodland workout area.
The park will open again for weekends from January 9 ahead of its offical opening in the spring.
Forest Enterprise Scotland’s project manager for Cuningar Loop, Joneen Clarke said: “We’re delighted to be able to open at the weekends and encourage people to keep on visiting the park. Our Come and Try events were so popular we’ve had people come back time and time again which is fantastic.
“Our official opening is Spring 2016 but we want the local community to use the areas which are already complete as much as possible.”
Ian Manson, Chief Executive of Clyde Gateway said: “It is great news that the upcoming weekend openings being organised by Forest Enterprise Scotland will enable even more people to come along and see the already incredible transformation of what was in effect a former landfill site.
“The new park is spectacular and already provides a real ‘wow’ factor which will increase even further early next year when we are able to complete and open the new pedestrian bridge linking it direct to the Village site on the opposite bank of the river.”
The loop can be accessed from Downiebrae Road. It is one of the ‘sustainable’ Legacy 2014 programmes borne from the Commonwealth Games.
Success The earlier come and try days were such a success, the park is now open on the weekends until December
