GLASGOW CANAL PROJECT

The Glasgow Canal is in north Glasgow, just 10 minutes from the city centre, and stretches from Port Dundas to Speirs Wharf, Firhill and beyond.

The area is an emerging destination, home to grass-roots and national cultural organisations, cutting-edge sports activities and Scotland’s first urban nature reserve. The Glasgow Canal Project is a co-operative of large and small organisations all based around the banks of the canal in North Glasgow, who each prioritise investment in and celebration of this often under-appreciated part of the city. Members include Pinkston Watersports, Scottish Opera, Hamiltonhill Claypits, The National Theatre of Scotland, Scottish Canals, Glasgow Sculpture Studios, Friends of Possilpark Green Space, Agile City, The Whisky Bond, Queens Cross Housing Association, The Glue Factory, Everyday Athlete, Igloo, Glasgow Tool Library and Glasgow City Council. By working collaboratively with local organisations, residents and stakeholders the Glasgow Canal Project aims to unlock the potential of the canal to create a vibrant neighbourhood for people to live, work and visit. This project is ongoing and aims to place local people and organisations at the heart of the process.
