About

Community woodland with views over Airdrie

This is a new woodland at the heart of the local community. It's a great place for a picnic, wildlife watching or just relaxing and enjoying the views over Airdrie. Stroll, cycle or run the short network of paths to explore the network of paths.

Local primary school children helped to plant the colourful native trees, including rowan, birch and oak. They were also involved in developing the stunning Skytower sculpture with artist Rob Mulholland.
