River Park for Stirling
Stirling Council has a vision for Stirling to become a vibrant thriving city and region to rival the best in the world. This is the vision behind an ambitious programme of change designed to secure a City Deal for Stirling.
A Stirling River Park forms a vital part of this City Deal. The River Park aims to transform the meandering river corridor, creating an open space network that supports a range of outdoor activities for local people and visitors alike.
The project will deliver an improved and expanded habitat network and develop proposals that will help to successfully integrate flood alleviation measures. Existing and new paths and bridges will connect attractions and communities, encouraging walking and cycling and making journeys much more attractive and convenient. Waymarking and interpretation will help people navigate to and within the river park and help to describe the historic and natural assets woven into the park area.
Your voice is vital. The more you tell us, the better the park can be.
We are in the early stages of developing a masterplan for the river park concept. We would like to know your views on the river through Stirling :
- How you use the river park area ?
- What routes you take ?
- What problems you encounter ?
- Where you wish to see improvements ?
- What ideas you might have for the river park ?
We will be holding community engagement workshops at the following venues and dates. Anyone is invited to call in throughout the afternoon, view the information and help us to understand your aspirations and needs for the river park. At each venue we will hold a design workshop with the local schools at 2.00pm and with the public at 5.30pm.
