Cuningar Loop

Cuningar Loop is a £5.7 million Legacy 2014 project that will provide an exciting new woodland park in the east end of Glasgow.



Located opposite the Commonwealth Games Athletes’ Village, it will transform 15 hectares of derelict, unused land, the size of15 large football pitches, into an attractive community greenspace.

Due to open in Spring 2015 it will give local people and visitors opportunities to get involved, get active and be inspired by the outdoors with key features including:

• Extensive path network
• Adventure play facilities
• A bike pump track
• Scotland’s first bouldering park
• Trim trail outdoor gym
• Large meadow and picnic areas
• Amphitheatre for outdoor learning
• Boardwalk running parallel to River Clyde
• A new bridge linking the wood to the Athletes’ Village

Set within beautiful surroundings, 15,000 trees will be planted including native oak, silver birch, maples and lime trees and a wild flower meadow. Expected to attract over 100,000 by 2021 it will be an important legacy of the Commonwealth Games.

A new pedestrian and cycle bridge will link the Athletes’ Village, set to be a new residential development after the Games, with the Cuningar Loop. There will be an additional entrance just off Downiebrae Road, the road on the right before going over Dalmarnock Bridge, enabling access from Rutherglen.

Images by Artist James Winnett, who has been closely involved with engaging the local community with the project, can be seen on a series of banners on Downiebrae Road, Rutherglen near the entrance to the site.

Taster tours

Forestry Commission Scotland will be arranging taster tours in quieter periods of the development. Please contact us to express your interest or request a copy of our leaflet contact: cuningar@forestry.gsi.gov.uk
