white water course - glasgow

Post by unknownpaddler » Tue Dec 06, 2011 1:20 pm

A long time ago i read athread on here that said about converting the maryhill locks into a river course and even had an artists impression, i am wondering if anyone knows anything about this? i am eager to know if this is going to go ahead because i think it would be a fantastic idea! maybe not the best area but would still be great because at the moment i live in Glasgow but i cant get out paddling much :( because i cant drive, go out with my club when i can but other than that none. i have heard of a couple of good playspots behind the art galleries and transport museum and even had a look just never managed to get the boat there yet. so i think the water course would be fantastic because it would be a great facility right on our door step :) any info on the WW course and the playspots on the kelvin appreciated

There are a few projects appearing for the canal

Hopefully these will get full approval and development started.

Google 'Glasgow Paddlesports' for info. There was a good event at Speirs Wharf in June. I think they are needing another 2mill to start the project. The canal and Waterways trust are 100% behind it.

The Leith project, indoor WW course, was put on hold.
