About

From a landfill site to a wildlife-filled woodland

An ongoing project to transform a former landfill site into a green oasis on the edge of Glasgow. The first phase of the restored site is now open, with newly planted trees, paths and benches.

Wander through the newly planted woodland overlooking the banks of the River Clyde. Keep an eye open for birds and butterflies.
