Local legend Sir Alex Ferguson to open Govan Pathway, 12.30pm Friday 7 July 2017

Join Govan Workspace and special guest, Sir Alex Ferguson, at the formal Opening of the new Govan Pathway at Water Row, near Govan Cross, on Friday 7 July from 12.30pm. The ribbon-cutting will be at 1pm.  As part of the day’s event there will be a Family Fun Day at Govan Old with lots of activities for children.

The pathway is a fantastic new community amenity on the banks of the Clyde. The project has transformed a large area of derelict land adjacent to the former Govan Old church which sits on one of the most important historic sites in the City of Glasgow. The path runs 200 metres along the river-edge and provides a new route between Water Row and Govan Old, designed to draw visitors from the Riverside Museum via the Govan ferry to visit the A-listed building and its medieval Govan Stones. It is hoped the stunning new walkway will encourage more people to come and enjoy Govan’s outstanding heritage and spectacular waterfront views.

Govan Workspace is very grateful to all of the funders who’ve made the project possible, including:

  • The Big Lottery
  • Central Govan Action Plan / Glasgow City Council
  • Scottish Government’s Vacant & Derelict Land Fund
  • Scottish Government’s Town Centre Communities Capital Fund
  • Sustrans     

Come and join the celebration on Friday 7th July.
