Works to fix the pond edge at Paisley’s Durrockstock Park are now complete, it has been confirmed.

The repairs at the beauty spot have now been finished, according to a report to the recent infrastructure, land and environment policy board.

The enhancements complement previous investment at the Foxbar site, which benefited from the introduction of new play equipment in the summer of 2022.

Councillor Stephen Burns, an SNP representative for Paisley Southwest, previously said the upgrade would make a “big difference” at the park.

“It’s great to see these works are now coming together,” he said earlier this year, as the project was set to begin.

“Repairs to the pond edge have been needed for some time because it’s collapsing.

“It’s an important part of the park for people and this will make a big difference.

“It will bring a real boost to the area.”

He said the work was important from a “safety standpoint” as well as for maintaining the general appearance of the area.

Councillor Burns added at the time: “By getting this done, it will help spruce it up.

“You can get a lot of rubbish around the side of the pond, so hopefully it will help with that as well.

“We had the new play park open, which has been great, children and families have enjoyed that, and these additional works will add to the good feeling around the park.

“People in the community enjoy Durrockstock Park and it means a lot to them, so they want to see it kept in a good condition.”

A service update report, authored by Gordon McNeil, Renfrewshire Council’s director of environment, housing and infrastructure was considered by councillors at the board on Wednesday, November 8.

“Work to repair the pond edge at Durrockstock Park is now complete,” the paper said.
