Footfall increases at the park
Castlemilk Park has seen increased footfall over the past year.
The woodland area’s community woodland officer believes the increase is due to closer ties between the park and the local community.
More than 100 events have taken place at the park between April 2017 and March 2018, with the most popular being last October’s pumpkin festival, which attracted over 2000 people.
S t u a r t W h i t t a k e r, community woodland officer at the park, said: “The increased footfall at Castlemilk Park is a positive sign that adults and children in the community enjoy spending a larger percentage of their time outdoors.
“This is an area of regeneration in Castlemilk, so it is important for us to continue to communicate and engage with residents and other community groups so they are aware of the events and activities taking place throughout the year and continue to make use of their natural surroundings.”
