The final chapter of Collegelands is being written, this is your opportunity to be part of it.

Almost 20 years since Collegelands was first created, the final piece of the jigsaw is now being proposed.

Collegelands Park – a mixed use space – with a park, community lounge and arts centre, student residence and contemporary apartments, just a short walk from Strathclyde University and the city centre – will complete the Collegelands masterplan.

In creating a unique place to live, work and play for today but which reflects the heritage of the past, we want the local community to help shape our plans.

Collegelands Park Proposal

At the heart of Collegelands Park will be a new 2.5 acre park, bringing a much-needed green space, a new set of lungs, to the city.

Landscape architects and community groups are working with us to create the park - an area almost three times the size of the city’s Blythswood Square Gardens.

A place to relax, catch up with friends and exercise surrounded by orchard and blossom trees, with a social garden space for residents and community growing plots.

Here are some of the things you’ve told us you’d like to see in the park. We want this to be a safe and enjoyable space for everyone. We are holding a separate 1 hour design session for neighbours. If you’d like to take part in this, contact us on the email or phone number below.

A community lounge and arts centre, run by local charity, Dream Machine Productions, is planned at Collegelands Park.

580 student beds for rent

157 new apartments
