The Friends of Cumbernauld House Park are delighted to announce the creation of a special Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Legacy wildflower area. In partnership with the Games’ Youth Legacy Ambassadors, a special event taking place this weekend will see over 300 seedballs planted within the park. These seedballs were created by visitors from all over the world who came to Glasgow during this year’s Commonwealth Games, said to have been the best Games ever.
On Saturday, 18th October, from 10am to 12pm, we will be hosting a community planting event in the park and anyone is invited to come along and help us to plant these seedballs, with no tools required. The wildflower area will be created along a small section of the eastern edge of the park, towards the entrance to Cumbernauld Glen from Meadow View.
As part of this fantastic Commonwealth Games Legacy project, we also expect to be presented with a special commemorative bench in the near future. This bench will be located close to the wildflower area and, from it’s elevated position, will offer fantastic views of the park and Cumbernauld House.
We thank everyone for their continued support of our work to improve and promote the park and we hope to see you on Saturday morning.
