Following sustained lobbying by community members for the retention of Douglas Park (on the corner of Stewarton Drive and Douglas Drive), South Lanarkshire Council has now indicated its willingness to open discussions with the local community to develop a strategy to preserve and enhance the site. Cambuslang Community Council are supporting local residents to form a new community body called ‘Friends of Douglas Park’ to work with South Lanarkshire Council to restore the park and ensure its long term future.

Local residents are being asked to get involved or simply to show their support by emailing their details and comments to or by contacting Bruce Loney (07816 977730) or Susan White (07804 645853).
