The temporary parklet that has been outside the CCA on Sauchiehall Street for the last few weeks was yesterday put into Council storage until spring next year.

But we’re delighted that the planters and plants from the parklet have been successfully relocated to Garnethill Multicultural Centre on Rose Street, with the help of Community Safety Glasgow. The plants would never have survived a winter of storage, so we’re delighted that they’ve found a new home in the heart of the local community.

The image attached shows one of the two new planters in place at the front of the Centre. Ross Donald, the Centre’s Co-ordinator, said:

“Delighted with the work. The quality of planting is excellent. Quickly completed with no fuss. Thanks particularly to the Community Payback boys and Jim the supervisor. They have given me some good ideas for some more collaborations next year”.
