What's the story on this one, is it under construction or being dismantled?

It's a lovely wee park too Sharon .. loads of well kept and manicured spaced, kiddies play area, decorative fountain and plenty of old capstans and berthing bollards along the riverside to sit on and just watch the river.

On a lovely, sunny day I think it would be ideal for a wee sit down and to spend a hour or two with a flask and some sandwiches. :D

What an odd and lovely thing. I hope somebody knows why on earth it's there.
All the world seems in tune on a Spring afternoon, when we're poisoning pigeons in the park.

The Transformation Award

Townhead Transformation
Who: Glasgow Housing Association, Glasgow Council, Gorbals Art Project

What: transformation of a run-down housing estate into a community with public art and landscaping at a cost of £815,000

Where: Townhead, Glasgow

Quick eco-credentials With local homes being refurbished, the council wanted to do something to transform the public realm, so worked with the community to create outdoor spaces that are good for the environment and local people

What the judges said
‘Inspiring. This is a very difficult thing to get right - getting people onside and including everyone. As well as homes, they have created a place, which is powerful.’

Key green features

All artwork was designed in partnership with local young people, playspaces were designed in consultation with both young and older residents.
Biodiversity was increased and lots of new trees were planted.
Rather than being thrown away, the 1960s concrete street sculptures will be covered in bright, hardwearing materials and reused.
Yes Bridie, you do.
