The Park

Destined to become Scotland's largest urban nature park, the Seven Lochs Wetland Park is an exciting new Green Network project. In summer 2016 we secured £4.5 million funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) which will support the £6.8 million project to develop the Seven Lochs Wetland Park as a major new heritage park for Scotland.

Bringing together almost 20 sq km of lochs, parks, nature reserves and woodlands between Glasgow and Coatbridge the park already offers an exciting range of things to see and do. Encompassing seven lochs, five local nature reserves, a country park and one of Glasgow’s oldest buildings at Provan Hall, the park's miles of walking and cycling routes provide the perfect place to unwind from the stresses of city life.

The park will become a major new hub for heritage conservation and learning and engagement, and will leave an important legacy for the communities within and neighbouring the park.  When complete, the project will enable local people and visitors to experience the natural and cultural heritage of the Seven Lochs area like never before and help local communities to take ownership of the park for generations to come.

Improved visitor facilities are planned to create gateways to the park at Hogganfield Loch, Provan Hall, Drumpellier Country Park and Glenboig Life Centre as well as the restoration of Provan Hall - one of Glasgow’s oldest buildings.

The project also includes the development of walking and cycling routes linking the gateway sites and improvements to paths, signage, interpretation and management across the whole park, as well as a range of activities for people to enjoy and learn about the area’s heritage, including opportunities for training and volunteering.
