Multi-activity woodland park within Glasgow
Cuningar Loop is an exciting woodland park on the banks of the River Clyde. Enjoy a stroll along the riverside boardwalk or forest trails. Relax with a picnic in the large open meadow. Get active at our bike skills area or go adventuring in Scotland's first outdoor bouldering park.
The bike track is designed to introduce cycling to people with a wide range of abilities and ages. There are three tracks: balance bike, pump and skill building.
Scotland's first outdoor bouldering park is designed to introduce new climbers to the sport whilst also providing challenges for the more experienced climber. A couple of boulders also have features to allow for para-climbing. We recommend that climbers use fall protection mats, as some of the boulders are over 4m high. Find out more about the climbing route at Climb Scotland.
The adventure play area is suitable for everyone and is designed to challenge users to explore the freedom of play in an active way.
Come and try our installations where you can exercise in the fresh air in a natural environment.
There are over 3 miles of paths on mixed surfaces which are accessible to everyone and have plenty of seating.
The Cuningar Stones is a permanent public art project by Glasgow based artist James Winnett. The 15 stones can be found across the park, with many reflecting the history of the site and local area.
The impressive Evolve sculpture was created by Glasgow’s Rob Mulholland. It is located close to the south entrance to the site. The six-metre high steel sculpture represents the transformation of Cuningar Loop from derelict land into the vibrant community woodland that it is today.
The car park is managed by Clyde Gateway.
