Re: Pollok Park site for "Go Ape" centre.... just say NO!!

One more thought. If the attacks on the Henry Moore's placed adjacent to the Burrell a few years ago are anything to go by Go Ape won't stand a chance! They had to install 24 hour security then too. But it should not be allowed to get to that point.

Re: Pollok Park site for "Go Ape" centre.... just say NO!!

I agree. The Burrell should have been sited elsewhere and goes against the spirit of the lease. I was really pissed off at the time! So historically, this is just GCC riding roughshod over everyone yet again. Which tells us one thing – in 5, 10, 20 years time there will be another proposal for somet...

Re: Pollok Park site for "Go Ape" centre.... just say NO!!

Great meeting! The city councillors showed themselves for what they are. Shifty, double-talking, bullshitting idiots. Great stuff from Save Pollok Park and from the floor. So many good moments, but the bit when Go Ape and their pet PR drone were fingered as dodgy bastards was great. Or the complete ...

The bike trail is relatively harmless. Although there is something slightly dumb about rushing through the woods like a bat out of hell...

Re: Pollok Park site for "Go Ape" centre.... just say NO!!

I think we are getting to the heart of the problem here. No one at GCC seems to understand what it means for many of us to have a semi-wild woodland that can be wandered in at will in any season (or at any time – day or night). Over the years I've watched the spread of 'amenities' in the park with d...

Re: Pollok Park site for "Go Ape" centre.... just say NO!!

If you draw an imaginary line around all of the proposed sights, that takes up a pretty huge chunk of the woods. To imagine that these sites will be discreet form each other would be naive to say the least! Parties of people will be constantly traipsing between them all day, every day. Will they kee...

Re: Pollok Park site for "Go Ape" centre.... just say NO!!

We cant let this happen (only found out about it this morning!)!!! Pollok Park is unique. Its a huge green lung, full of fast-disappearing wildlife. But more than that it is about the ongoing privatisation of public space. We are watched and fenced and told what to do all the time, Pollok Park is on...

Sounds great! I'm glad that the locals managed to get into it as otherwise this would have been another top-down, 'this is good for you' so-called cultural event. And I agree anything that happens in these circumstances become part of the event. Wish I'd been there! Fuck it I'm going to organise som...

I'd heard the Easterhouse one was dodgy. Some kid started to whistle along and got slapped down by a security guard! Any event like this that needs a security guard is a bit dubious? In Cumbernauld we visited the top of the old shopping centre, where there were penthouse flats at one time. Then it w...

No it was not shit. I went to the Cumbernauld event and the combination of brutal modernism and droning sound was really amazing. If you can maybe get past the idea that 'music' can only be a linear progression of chords? They were riffing of the sense of place, in this case liminal spaces – underpa...
