11 September 2021 (3:00pm) West Dunbartonshire Levengrove Park, in Dumbarton,
is located on a dramatic stretch of land where the River Leven meets the
estuary of the River Clyde. It has impressive views across the Clyde to
Renfrewshire and to the adjacent town and Dumbarton Rock on the other side of
the Leven. This Victorian park has recently undergone a £3.8 million
transformation, thanks to investment from West Dunbartonshire Council and
funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Come along and learn about the rich
history of the park’s newly restored heritage features including St Serf’s
Church – with links to Robert the Bruce - Shiers Well, Kilmahew Fountain and
the Cenotaph. The new pavilion is the home of the popular Pavillion Café,
complete with outside seating, and an adjacent upgraded play area for
children. The park also boasts a training suite with multiple opportunities
for learning, a formal garden with extensive spring and summer bedding
displays, an Arboretum, open grassland, and recreation facilities which
include a basketball court. Levengrove is home to a number of events
throughout the year including a popular summer Gala Day, the annual Scottish
Pipe Band Championships in July and a fireworks display each November. A great
day out with something for everyone. More about Levengrove Park can be found
