Plans have been developed for multi-disciplinary cycle facilities which will be the main attraction of the new Gateway to Strathclyde Country Park.
New and experienced cyclists will be able to enjoy a pump track, mountain bike skills areas and trails, Learn to Ride zones, and a trials bike area.
There will be a range of spaces for different types of sport cycling, alongside improved active travel connections within the park. These will create safe environments for community groups and families to teach cycle skills to young people. £120,000 has been awarded to this initiative from the Place Based Investment Program and is supported by £20,000 of investment from the council’s Country Parks service.
Local families will be encouraged to explore the park through a natural play trail, public art and access improvements including a family friendly nature walk. Work has already started by North Lanarkshire Council on creating hedgerows, a wildflower meadow and tree planting in the park at Bellshill, with opportunities for local people to get involved.
