Dalmuir Park was restored in 2012/13 as a major project jointly funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and West Dunbartonshire Council.

As a result the Dalmuir Park Restoration Project has enhanced and revitalised the Park through the restoration and conservation of the character and heritage elements. The Park has been used as a popular recreation resource and venue for events since its opening in 1906.

The Capital works within the park are complete and some of the improvements you will note are: the restoration of the existing pathways, hard and soft landscaping areas as well as existing Edwardian fencing, the fountain and floral boat. Improvements have also been made to the play area, bandstand area, street lighting and furniture as well as the creation of a clock sculpture and a new all-weather play pitch being built together with a small play picnic area to the rear of the café and Rangers' Office.

Through the Ranger Service, set up as part of the Restoration Project, volunteers, community representatives, the Friends Group and schools etc. have become involved not only with the restoration work, but in the continued management of the park, community events and educational opportunities. Community involvement is encouraged in the day to day management of the Park. This also allows existing visitors to make better use of the facilities and attract new visitors to the Park. The Community Engagement Ranger is based here and is responsible for the co-ordination of all activities and events taking place within the Park.

Dalmuir Park has just recently been awarded the Green Flag Award by Keep Scotland Beautiful in recognition for achieving the national standard for parks and green spaces. Through the hard work and dedication of park staff, volunteers and communities, the park has been developed and is being maintained to an excellent standard.

There are also two Greenspace Ranger Operatives who patrol the Park and engage with the public on a regular basis.  If you are interested in being involved in any activities in the park or if you have any memories or photographs of the Park you would wish to share please contact the Community Engagement Ranger for Dalmuir Park.
