Hunt begins for architect to revamp Helensburgh park

  • Comment

Argyll & Bute Council is on the hunt for an architect for a £2 million overhaul of Hermitage Park in Helensburgh

The winning team will support the council in developing a stage two heritage lottery funding application for the4.7 hectare town centre green space.

If the funding application is successful the appointment will continue up to project completion. Applications to other funding bodies including Historic Scotland and Sports Scotland may also be required.

Planned to complete in 2016, the project will focus on restoring the park’s heritage assets, upgrading recreational spaces, increasing visitor numbers and creating a more sustainable environment.

Located around 200 metres from Helensburgh town centre, Hermitage Park is the main green space within the historic grid-iron settlement which was first laid out in the 1750s.

Key features include a bowling green, playground, formal gardens, shrubbery, war memorial and disused mill.

The redevelopment project comes almost two years after Gareth Hoskins revealed an independent masterplan to ‘give one of Scotland’s finest planned towns a breath of new life’.

Key proposals in the vision included creating a new leisure centre and supermarket on a pier head overlooking the Clyde Estuary and upgrading Hermitage Park although the practice is not involved in the latest regeneration scheme.

The deadline for requests to participate is 16 June.
