An arts space built on the vacant site between Finnieston Street and Exhibition Centre train station the West End has now opened to the public. 

Park XR is part of SWG3’s new partnership where Yardworks and Skypark. It has transformed Skypark 7 into Park XR, a hub of artistic expression that blends street art and contemporary art within a 43,000 sq ft playground in Finnieston. 

Running until June 30, artists are commissioned to create murals, light installations and art displays.

Each weekend, there will be a programme of free workshops and activities to teach people about street art, graffiti, and digital art led by artists.

Gary McKay, director of Yardworks Studio, said: "Our opening weekend was brilliant, despite the good Scottish weather.

"We're really looking forward to welcoming more people to the site over the next couple of weeks and showing off not only street and graffiti arts but digital arts too.

"We’re open 11 to 6 over the weekends and will be open for schools and communities through the week - just get in touch to book a slot.”

There will also be a Virtual Reality weekend from June 21 to 23 which will see the site activated with extended reality layers, using an iPhone or smartphone to engage in an immersive digital experience.

Angela Higgins, strategic lettings advisor at Resonance Capital Skypark, said: "PARK XR is now open and is free to everyone to take part in this new initiative that celebrates the spirit of human connection, embracing diverse ideas and us being part of the community."
