The whole park covers an area of 500 acres and includes two natural lochs, moorland, woodlands and grasslands.
The Monklands Canal lies towards the southern perimeter of the park offering further walking and cycling potential. The lochs and canal attract a large number of water birds, both resident and migrants.
The woodlands and grasslands are also rich in bird life, large and small mammals and a great variety of native wildflowers. The networks of paths makes for easy access to all areas of the park and many of these are accessible to wheelchairs and prams.
Situated within North Lanarkshire, to the west of Coatbridge and east of Glasgow, the park was formerly a private estate. The land was given over to the Burgh for use as a public park in 1919, and was designated as a country park in 1984. The main entrance to the park is from Townhead Road, Coatbridge and the Visitor Centre is located here, providing the ideal starting point for a visit to the park. There is a lecture room available for hire in the Visitor Centre. The centre is open all year round.
There is a cafeteria for refreshments, and a reception area that has a variety of information leaflets and displays on many walks, the varied wildlife and the natural history of the park.
The Scottish Wildlife Trust Falls of Clyde and Visitor Centre is nestled in the Clyde Valley and is part of the Clyde Valley Woodlands National Nature Reserve.READ MORE
