Visitor Centre Extension underway
North Lanarkshire Council and the Seven Lochs Partnership have commissioned work to extend and upgrade the Visitor Centre at Drumpellier Country Park.
Work is now underway to create an extension to the visitor centre that will overlook Lochend Loch, providing a window on the loch's wildlife. The new viewing area will include telescopes to get visitors closer to nature, with information to help people learn more about the park's birdlife.
The building upgrade will also include new information and interpretation to let people know more about where to go and what to do in the park, and find out about the area's history and nature. From the ancient Iron Age crannog to fascinating fungi and marvelous moss there's lots to discover and explore.
The building works also include improvements to entrances, toilets and activity space to help improve the visitor experience and offer scope for a range of events and workshops. Work is progressing well to date, and the upgraded visitor centre is currently scheduled to re-open in April 2019. We look forward to welcoming you then!
