Motion text

That this House notes that the 26th of October marks the 30th anniversary of the opening of Garnethill Park in Glasgow; appreciates that this was a Scottish-German projected initiated by the City of Glasgow and the Goethe Institute as a lasting contribution to the Glasgow 1990 European Capital of Culture celebrations; understands that the park was formed around a tiled mural created in 1978 by local artists John Kraska, Irene Keenan and Tommy Lydon, which was part of the creative renewal of the Garnethill area; welcomes the addition in 2005 by the artist Ulrike Enslein of cast concrete slabs which immortalise the memories of members of the Garnethill community; further notes that the park features a community bread oven; appreciates the ongoing work of Garnethill Community Council to maintain and champion the park they helped to create; thanks local businesses for contributing to the raffle which is part of the 30th anniversary celebrations; and hopes the park will continue to be a well cared for and integral part of community life in Garnethill for many years to come.
