Drumpelier braces for Seven Lochs visitor influx
July 4 2018
North Lanarkshire Council has taken an important step toward the delivery of an extended visitor centre at Drumpelier Country Park near Coatbridge, serving as a gateway to the Seven Lochs Wetland Park.
This work will see the current centre expanded to cater for an expected influx of visitors to the expanded park in addition to facilitating a wider education and activity programme.
A design team led by Doig + Smith and Holmes Miller has been appointed to deliver the centre, a key attraction of the 16sq/km urban park – hot on the heels of a similar destination at Glenboig.
In a statement the architects wrote: “The extension creates a new viewing area over Lochend Loch, with displays telling the story of the park and the Seven Lochs project.”
Subject to planning permission the new visitor centre could move on-site by the autumn.
