Barrowland Park Spring Clean 2017
Our friends, Fans of Barrowland Park, conducted a much-needed Clean Up at Glasgow’s Album Pathway on Saturday. The volunteers spent the morning brushing away layers of dirt from the coloured album ‘spines’ that make up the artwork. Thanks to their TLC, it quickly became easier to identify the named Barrowland performers on the 103-metre long display. Turner prize nominated designer of the Pathway, Jim Lambie, also delighted the Fans Of group by stopping by to chat with volunteers.
A temporary site earmarked for residential development, Barrowland Park’s current status is only guaranteed until September 2017. The group are campaigning to raise awareness of the Park with the aim of warding off future development plans. The ultimate objective is to retain the Park as a resource for the local community.
