Working with Police Scotland, we’ll be closing car parks to prevent vehicles accessing our parks and encourage people to follow social distancing measures which are in place for their protection.
The car parks at Moss o’Balloch, Balloch Parks, Overtoun Estate, Havoc and the Saltings are closed.
In addition, from 8 April the car park at Lusset Park that serves the Kilpatrick Hills will be closed.
Local people can continue to access parks in their area on foot and by cycle.
Thanks for your support.
Levengrove Park, in Dumbarton, is located on a dramatic stretch of land where the River Leven meets the estuary of the River Clyde. It occupies a south facing slope overlooking the Leven to the north and east and the Clyde to the south. It affords dramatic views across the Clyde to Renfrewshire and to the adjacent town and Dumbarton Rock on the other side of the Leven.
The park consists of a formal garden with extensive spring and summer bedding displays, there is also mixed shrub planting in the formal area, an Arboretum, open grassland, recreation facilities which include a ball court, and a large play area with facilities for children of all ages.
The park also has a café and Rangers Office in the new pavilion in the middle of the park.

The award was £2.8 million with the Council committing £800,000 towards the project with a further £120,000 of work in kind.
