Town Parks initiative

The six designated Town Parks within North Lanarkshire are:

  • Belhaven Park, Wishaw
  • Burngreen Park and Recreation Ground, Kilsyth
  • Centenary and West End Parks, Airdrie
  • Cumbernauld House Park, Cumbernauld
  • Duchess of Hamilton Park, Motherwell
  • West End Park, Coatbridge

Our Town Parks initiative led to the establishment of active friends groups.

Through a combination of hard work and perseverance by the friends groups, aided by council officers, there have been significant improvements to the parks.

These have included:

  • Improved lighting schemes
  • New play areas
  • Restoration to heritage items
  • Upgrading of path networks
  • Establishment of new landscaped areas
  • Improved maintenance
  • Encouraged greater bio-diversity
  • Regular events

The friends groups continue to identify further developments although these will only progress after community consultation has taken place.
