OFFICIAL OPENING OF LOCHSHORE PARK HUB
It was a treat to attend the new £4.2 million Lochshore Park Hub at Kilbirnie Loch was officially opened recently by North Ayrshire Provost, Cllr Anthea Dickson.
The Hub will provide food, drink, shelter, toilets, function spaces, changing rooms and more - and will be the focal point for everything that takes place at the site.
Since June 2021 the local community and key stakeholders have been providing ideas on what should be included within Lochshore Park.
The Hub has been made possible with grant contributions from The Scottish Government’s Regeneration Capital Grant Fund, Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), Scottish Enterprise, sportscotland, Garnock Rugby Club, and Land Trust.
An active travel route linking Lochshore Park to the NCN7 cycle route has also been completed, while work on a new 5km running/cycling loop started earlier this summer and is due to finish later this year.
This is an impressive development, the potential of which is really exciting – there is so much scope for it and it promises to become a really popular destination for the local community and visitors for months and years to come.
It was also good to catch up with Councillors from North Ayrshire Council’s Scottish National Party (SNP) administration, Council Leader, Marie Burns, Cllr Margaret Johnson, Provost Cllr Anthea Dickson, and Councillor Scott Davidson - SNP for Kilwinning.
