Seven Lochs Wetland Park secures £4.5m grant
July 27 2016
Seven Lochs Wetland Park has been conceived by Glasgow and Clyde Valley Green Network and Collective Architecture and will stretch from Riddrie in the west to Coatbridge in the east in an effort to enhance biodiversity and wellbeing.
The lottery cash will ensure the £6.8m masterplan can now proceed with the formation of key ‘gateway’ features housing interpretation, refreshments and conveniences for residents and locals.
Each of these will be connected by a new network of walking and cycling routes which will snake through the park with boardwalks installed over wetlands and a scattering of bird hides and viewing platforms for visitors to linger and observe wildlife.
A ‘green’ bridge across the busy M73 (designed by landscape architect Euan Maharg) also forms part of the plans - whose primary focus is the extension and enhancement of existing habitat.
