Woodhall Community Park Gets Funding for Regeneration

Community Links Scotland supported River Clyde Homes secure almost £100,000 from Big Lottery Community Spaces Fund to regenerate Woodhall Park. The three-quarters of an acre community park sits in the middle of a recently completed social housing development programme.

The funding will enable a programme of events and activities to be provided over two years for local groups, schools and wider community to participate in planning, planting, development and ongoing use of the park. The park will include new native species planting, forest school activities, edible food corner, nature trail, viewing platform and community art.

To launch the project a fun day was held including representation from RCH and project partners: SMART Youth Project, Woodhall Community Association, Treetops Nursery, Parklea, Community Links Scotland and Inverclyde Council. Stalls and events included arts and crafts, bouncy castle, climbing wall, scavenger hunt, story- telling, tree and flower planting, and the fun day was attended by over 200 local people. A community survey also took place to identify local people’s interest in participating in a wide range of projects that will take place in the Park. RCH will now be able to inform people in advance of these events to allow as many local people as possible to get involved in improving and using their ‘community space’.
