greenspace scotland are working with Glasgow City Council to explore lighting and safety options within three pilot parks in Glasgow - Cranhill Park, Kelvingrove Park and Queen’s Park.

Glasgow City Council has committed to look into providing sensitive lighting solutions in parks, which consider both equality and climate impacts. To explore the benefits, issues and implications of lighting in parks, greenspace scotland and Glasgow City Council will be using a placemaking approach in three pilot parks - Cranhill Park, Kelvingrove Park and Queen’s Park. 

A series of workshops are scheduled for Oct/Nov/Dec and will include community discussions to inform different approaches to lighting and safety in parks. Online surveys have already gathered a wealth of information on how people use each park, along with their views on safety and lighting. This info will help shape the workshops and provide the views of people who can’t attend. Read the Parks Lighting Update report for more background information on the project. 

The timing and in-person format of the workshops are to allow visits to the park at dusk/darkness so we can experience conditions at that time. The workshops are free to attend but numbers are limited for night-time safety reasons. 

Please book a place on Eventbrite, if you would like to attend the Cranhill Park, Queen's Park or Kelvingrove Park workshop, registration includes full details and safety info.
