Facilities at Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park sites in Inverclyde are set for upgrades totaling almost £450,000. The investment from the council comes after it took over the reins of the local parts of the regional park – the largest in Scotland – and the associated ranger service.
Now £250k of funding has been approved to enhance the existing facilities at the Greenock Cut (Cornalees) and Lunderston Bay in Gourock. Improvements across both sites will include new signage, doors, picnic tables and bins, redecoration inside and out, roof repairs, upgrades to visitor toilets and enhanced security
The figure includes a £72k grant from national body NatureScot, which was formerly known as Scottish Natural Heritage.
The council is spending a further £195k on a new children’s play park at Lunderston Bay to enhance what is already a popular Inverclyde visitor attraction.
The rangers led several successful events and activities as part of the council’s Summer of Fun 21 programme during the school holidays.
