REGENERATION initiative Clyde Gateway has been awarded £2.3 million towards the extension of the riverside woodland park at Cuningar Loop near Dalmarnock.
The money comes from the Scottish Government’s Clyde Mission fund.
The project involves reclaiming 8.5 hectares of vacant and derelict land that has been unused for 50 years, turning it into quality, accessible green space along the river.
Ian Manson, chief executive of Clyde Gateway, said: “We are delighted to welcome Clyde Mission’s funding to unlock this next stage of investment.
“Cuningar Loop Woodland Park has been a focal point for Clyde Gateway, and as well as providing an immediate jobs boost in terms of construction, it will help address issues of health inequality, educational attainment and social capital which have been further impacted by COVID-19.”
