NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde (NHSGGC) is proposing to change the way rehabilitation services are provided for older people in the North East of Glasgow and East Dunbartonshire. Included within the proposal is the transfer of services currently provided at Lightburn Hospital to other sites in the North East of Glasgow. If the services are transferred it will result in the closure of the Lightburn Hospital site.
The Scottish Government is keen to hear the views of children and young people on the proposals in Places, People and Planning which may directly affect them. Working with YoungScot, a short online survey has been commissioned to seek views of children and young people on how the place where they live, work or go to school should change in the future. The survey can be accessed here: http://www.surveygizmo.eu/s3/90029151/05e0182d3299

The highest point of the park gives views north to Ben Lomond and south to Tinto hills. The City Improvement Trustees purchased the park in 1866 from Mr Walter Stewart of Haghill.
