Go Loopy in the NewYear
The new £ 5.7million woodland park facility at Cuningar Loop in Rutherglen will reopen at the weekends to the public from January 9 ahead of the official opening in the spring.
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.
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.”
The facility has been closed since December 6.
It has already proved a massive hit with locals. Hundreds have made the trip along to see the site which has transformed a part of the Burgh that was previously unknown to a lot of people.
Forest Enterprise Scotland’s Community and Recreation Manager for Glasgow, Susan Nash, said: “We want to keep giving the local community opportunities to come down and use the park during our open weekends.
“We’re working on creating a calendar of events for Cuningar Loop for the whole community to enjoy when it opens next year.”
The loop can be accessed from Downiebrae Road. It is one of the ‘sustainable’ Legacy 2014 programmes borne from the Commonwealth Games.
