SOUTHSIDE Community Set To Benefit From Roll Out Of Wheeled Sports Track

7 July, 2020 | News

PLANNERS are being asked to approve a pump track as part of work to improve open space at North Toryglen.

The wheeled sports facility — suitable for cycles, scooters and skateboards — will be installed on a 3,900-square-metre site at the former Toryglen Park, near Asda at Aikenhead Road.

It will be appropriate for a wide age range and various levels of ability. The total length will be 110 metres and there will be two rest areas.

It is being provided in response to community demand for increased opportunities for wheeled forms of recreation.

The facility is one element of the North Toryglen green space and active travel project, which is being spearheaded by environmental charity Urban Roots, with project partners including Clyde Gateway and Glasgow City Council.

The masterplan also includes a park with natural play equipment, a wetland corridor and woodland/nature reserve, and improved walking and cycling routes.
