Bob Law’s Blog: Cuningar Loop and The River Clyde Walkway.
Walking and Photography
I had a recent trip out to Cuningar Loop Park situated between Dalmarnock and Rutherglen. A former area of waste ground located on a large meandering loop of the River Clyde has been transformed into a much needed public park for this inner city area and Dalmarnock itself has been getting a makeover for the last ten years with decent new housing springing up everywhere.
Compared to the dark tenement streets and semi industrial neighbourhood I remember working in during the 1980s and 1990s it is a much cleaner, brighter place.
I jumped on a train to Dalmarnock Station and the park is fifteen minutes easy flat walk from there. Several buses also run near it, or if arriving by foot or pedal bike the nearby River Clyde walkway/cycle track makes a pleasant extra addition to this walk’. This was the way I departed after visiting the park, walking along it to reach Glasgow Green. Within the park an elevated wooden lookout tower, several eye-catching sculptures, a bike trail, an adventure playground, and around nine individual ten foot high rock climbing boulders give it added interest.
The boardwalk trail along the River Clyde is a real highlight. In lush vegetation rich summer conditions it feels like the Scottish equivalent of a green jungle trail. All in all a good scenic day out if you haven’t been there yet,with the option of being linked by foot or bike with Glasgow Green and Richmond Park.
