Cumbernauld Community Park
Managed by North Lanarkshire Council, this site has plenty of open greenspace as well as areas of wildflower meadow, spruce plantation and hedgerows. The park is full of history, and there’s plenty of wildlife to see from roe deer and badgers to butterflies and bees. There is a children’s playpark and a path leading to Andy Scott’s Arria sculpture.
- Keep a lookout for signs of badgers as you stroll through the trees
- Imagine life in old Cumbernauld as you explore the park – it’s the site of an ancient roman road
- Watch farmland birds as they feast on the unharvested oat meadow
As part of our Nectar Networks projects, we’re creating a new wildflower meadow at the park, plus a meadow of unharvested oats.
The park can be easily accessed by parking near the mosque and Craigalbert Church Craigalbert Way (off Eastfield Road), and there is also a parking area at Eastfield Cemetery.
