Old Stable Courtyard: Project engagement

Visitors to the park will no doubt be aware of the sad state of the Old Stable Courtyard buildings, adjacent to Pollok House.

Access has been severely curtailed for safety reasons, with fencing installed. A diversion is in place for pedestrians, and the Clydesdale horses that used to be a popular attraction, are currently being looked after in Ayrshire.

It’s a huge multi-year project, and efforts to restore the buildings are led by the council, who manage the park estate. We understand it will be a long-term project.

Members of The Friends of Pollok Park have been engaging with the council, and the various organisations/stakeholders involved in the project, to ensure the views of our members and park users are properly represented, to help ensure a long-term future for the buildings.

We’ll add resources and details below as the project, and our understanding of its current state, changes.

  1. Great opportunity awaits. Pollok house and the Burrell collection need the Stables restoration project to begin soon. A triumvirate of world beating attractions will bring visitors from all over the world to Glasgow Southside. A bigger question is soon to be ;how successful can we be ?
