Currently, much of the site remains underused and unmanaged – and we are keen to work with local communities to help maintain and harness what’s best about it.
Furthermore, the EuroPark plans would open the site up to new usage, encouraging interaction with the natural environment, creating wider leisure opportunities, and promoting greater wellbeing for current and future residents.
The Monkland Canal and Calder Water wind their way through the heart of the site which has played a key role in shaping the design approach of EuroPark.
As part of these proposals, Orchard Brae is in discussion with Scottish Canals on the best way to reinvigorate and enhance the canal which runs through EuroPark.
The vision includes upgrading of the canal and canalside and the positioning of new pontoons along the length of the canal to encourage people to use and enjoy the local waters.
