Get in the Loop and celebrate springtime
Forest Enterprise Scotland is encouraging the local community to visit Cuningar Loop in Rutherglen and join the fun at their Spring in the Loop event on Sunday, May 21.
There will be activities for the whole family to enjoy, including introductory climbing sessions, demonstrating how to approach bouldering for beginners, and guided walks to learn about the local wildlife and past history of Cuningar.
All activities are free, but some will require advance booking.
Cuningar Loop boasts an activity park that includes a bouldering area, adventure play, bike track and woodland work out area.
The park is designed to make children take risks, challenge themselves, learn and most importantly have lots of fun outdoors.
Eilidh Malcolm, community ranger at Forest Enterprise Scotland, said:“What better way to celebrate spring than to invite the community to enjoy everything Cuningar Loop has to offer?
“It is a lovely site for strolling, adventures and play and we hope everyone who comes down to our event is encouraged to come back again.
“Let’s hope the great weather continues.”
Visitors can explore the park using its 2.5 kilometres of mixed paths which are accessible to everyone.
Take a walk to the south entrance to see Glasgow sculptor Rob Mullholland’s six-metre high stainless steel creation that represents the transformation of Cuningar Loop from derelict land to the community woodland it is today.
This is a free event and open to the public. Children under 16 taking part in activities must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
