A new play park has just opened in Drumchapel.

Situated in the north-west of Glasgow, The Monymusk Place play park has taken inspiration from Drumchapel's connection to the Antonine Wall.

The Roman-themed play park includes stone sculptures and a bench based on ancient carvings found at Castlehill Fort.

Both were designed by stone masons, Josephine Crossland and Luke Bachelor at the Drumchapel Arts Workshop.

The play area has also been equipped with new spinner bowls, spinner plates, a wobble bridge, see-saw, and several items of balancing equipment including a trapeze walk, dynamic bar, water lily balance posts and a balance beam on springs.

At an official opening event, councillor Ruairi Kelly, city convener for neighbourhood services and assets, was joined by pupils from local schools, Antonine Primary School and St Clare’s Primary School.

Councillor Kelly said: "This is a terrific new play area and I hope it’s well used by local children.

"The range of equipment is fantastic and the connection to the Antonine Wall is a real bonus that I am sure will inspire all kinds of games and play.

"It is incredible to think the mighty Roman Empire reached its frontier minutes from the new play area and hopefully that can also help inspire an interest in our ancient history.

"As a council, we are fully committed to improving play spaces across the city and I am very pleased we have been able to work with the Heritage Lotter Fund to deliver this project."

The park is one of five play areas along the length of the Antonine Wall.

All the play areas were supported by Heritage Lottery Funding and financially backed by Glasgow City Council.
