The visitor centre at Drumpellier Country Park will close on 22 October for refurbishment as part of its role as a gateway to the Seven Lochs Wetland Park.

During the work, visitors will still be able to enjoy walks around the loch and woodlands, the crannog play area and public toilets will be available.

The centre will be refurbished and extended to create a new viewing area over the loch, with displays telling the story of the park and the Seven Lochs project.

Accessible toilets will be installed, more spaces created in the main loch-side car park and information points around the park are being developed.

This work is part of a £6.8 million project to develop the Seven Lochs Wetland Park, Scotland's largest urban nature park, which stretches from Hogganfield in the west to Drumpellier and Gartcosh in the east. From 2016 to 2021, the Seven Lochs Heritage Project aims to improve and protect the area's heritage buildings, wildlife habitat and archaeology to create a new attraction of national significance.

As a Gateway to the park, Drumpellier Country Park will be a hub for heritage conservation, learning and engagement.

The visitor centre will reopen in Spring 2019.
