Two greenspace areas are to be given extra protection through a new project.
Both Cathkin Braes and Castlemilk Park will benefit from a Commonwealth Games legacy project aimed at safeguarding 27 different sites in and around Glasgow for future generations.
The scheme, instituted by the UK wide charity Fields in Trust, means that use of these sites is now secured, under a legal agreement, for recreation.
The arrangement with Glasgow City Council means that the sites will only be used as public playing fields, open spaces, parks or for recreation, leisure or sporting use.
In the event that the council wished to change the use of a site, to sell, or build upon either Cathkin Braes or Castlemilk Park, Fields in Trust must give their consent.
In addition, if the council wanted to remove an area from the Fields in Trust scheme, an alternative site must be added to the list in substitution.
Councillor Frank McAveety said: “It’s widely acknowledged that having access to outdoor space and undertaking some level of activity has numerous mental and physical benefits for individuals and families.
“We were delighted to take part in this scheme to guarantee areas for people to use for a variety of purposes, be it children’s play, sport or more leisurely pursuits.
“Protecting sites such as the wellused and much loved Castlemilk Park and Cathkin Braes, with its stunning city views and exhilarating mountain bike trails, means that local people and visitors alike can make use of them and enjoy them now and crucially for decades to come.”
