Plans for a Glasgow skatepark under the M74 have taken a new step forward.

The Urban Park project on Devon Street is moving forward by hosting events to let residents have their say.

Glaswegians will be able to meet the team and discuss plans for the area which will encourage sports such as BMX, skateboarding, cycling and the use of outdoor gym equipment.

It is proposed by Glasgow Urban Sports (GUS) and will also incorporate the free space for public art, events and green spaces.

Now the first community consultation for the area will take place Thursday, May 25 between 4pm and 6pm at Pollokshields Bowling Club.

The second event will happen Saturday, May 27 between 2pm and 4pm at the Larkfield Centre Govanhill.

We previously reported Rob Cussons from GUS said: “The project has the potential to enhance the sense of community and quality of life for people living in an area currently dominated by one of Scotland’s major motorways.

"The Urban Sports Park would create a new high-quality area of the public realm, and a new landmark focal point within the southside of the city, that encourages all generations to freely exercise and enjoy themselves within a vibrant and stimulating space.

“As part of our community consultation and engagement, we’re asking local residents to respond to a short, online survey to ensure that together, we create a community asset that reflects common interests.

"The survey will help to demonstrate local support, an important step in securing the funding needed to realise the park.”
