What will it be like?
In time there will be miles and miles of trails to explore on foot, on bikes, or even on horseback. And there’ll be facilities for you to use, such as cafes and picnic areas. All around the park you’ll see signposts to help you navigate your way around.
Wetland park staff will help keep the area clean and safe, and run family friendly events to show you newly accessible areas, paths and wildlife watching spots.
Seven Lochs Wetland Park What’s planned? Destined to become Glasgow’s largest urban wildlife site, the proposed Seven Lochs Wetland Park is already a wild place worth visiting. 20 square kilometres of wetland, woodland, burns, ponds, lochs, raised bog, meadows and a canal are just waiting to be explored. Over the coming years you’ll witness the development of this special place, as a network of joined‐up routes appear throughout the area, visitor and community centres are built or improved, wildlife habitats enhanced and restored, bird hides put up, and much more! Why visit the park? The area has something for everybody, whether you’re looking for family fun, walks, cycling, shelter building, hide and seek in the woods, playing games, wildlife watching or wild foods foraging. There’s no better time of year to visit. In autumn and winter watch birds from far‐away places gather to feed at the lochs, in spring see the tadpoles grow legs and transform into frogs, and in summer lie in the wildflower meadows or chase the butterflies.
We’d like you to be involved If you live locally you’ll be able to watch as the area develops into a much more inviting and enjoyable place to visit. We’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in joining the Seven Lochs Volunteers. The group meets twice a month to do practical habitat work and wildlife surveys in the proposed park.
