New guides to the Park!

This Saturday (3rd September) will see the unveiling of a year long project for the friends of Cumbernauld House Park.  The team has been working hard to put together interpretative panels for the park so that park users and local people can have  a greater insight into the history of the park and town as well as the Flora and Fauna of the area.  The project has been helped by assistance from Awards for All, AG Barr and Highland Colour Coaters Ltd who have all lent their support to this community project.

The panels have information on the two Cumbernauld Castles, Gregory’s Girl filming, visits from Mary Queen of Scots, Cumbernauld New Town and excellent insights into why Cumbernauld House looks the way it does as well as a look at the trees and wildlife of the area.  There are lots of interesting pieces of information across the 5 boards throughout the park.

The panels will be unveiled at 10am on Saturday by local MP Gregg McClymont and the Friends hope to have representatives of the funders there also.  All are welcome to come along and see the unveiling of a new permanent feature for the biggest park in North Lanarkshire.
