We are incredibly excited to announce that we have been awarded funding from the Commonwealth Legacy Active Places Fund, Partick West Area Partnership and Hillhead Partnership, we now have now begun the work outlined below in partnership with Glasgow City Council.
UPDATE March 2017
It is so exciting to watch our park improvements coming to life. The beautiful sandstone amphitheatre is complete and we are so pleased with it. The cycle path round the football pitch is also finished, now opening up the whole park for a walk or a cycle. The willow tunnel is almost complete and thanks to Shirley for her work and all helpers in our building day. Huge thanks to Area West Partnership who have awarded us funding to paint 50% of our railings round the Park. That should be done soon. Planting comes next and then the finishing touches. What a journey it’s been but we almost there.
UPDATE Feb 2016
HPPA is over the moon to have been selected to take part in the Bags of Help fundraising scheme. This is awarded by Tesco from money raised by customers through the 5p bag charge to go directly back into the local community. The Hayburn Playpark Upgrade proposal will be on display for customers to vote on in the Maryhill store and the project with the most votes will receive increased funding for their project.
The football pitch surfacing has now been replaced and a landscaped terrace and new stairs to the pitch have been created. We have three new picnic tables, one with disabled and pram access and many new benches and rubbish bins. Our two new hammocks have been installed and we have lovingly restored everyone’s favourite monkey bars! There was nothing new that could replace the 1980s classic and so it was rebuilt to the original design and new play surfacing fitted. We planted our orchard and thanks to everyone who braved the rain to help us. We now have 12 fruit trees and 8 fruit bushes.
Next phase of renovation is scheduled for March 2016.
