Viewpark Conservation Group
Douglas Support belongs to the people of Viewpark!
The Viewpark Conservation Group succeeded in our campaign to save and purchase The Historic Douglas Support (Our Glen). It took 19 years to do this. We realised the only way to save the estate was to buy the land and we have achieved this with the help of the Government’s new legislation - the community right to buy scheme.

This historic piece of green belt land is now safe for our future generations.

A huge thank you goes to the Blythswood Trust, also to all of the organisations and individuals along the way who have helped us achieve our goal. We will be eternally grateful to you all. We also thank YOU, the people of Viewpark and surrounding areas. You asked us to save our beloved glen and we have now achieved this. Now we have the next step of creating a safe, accessible park for all.

Work is now in hand to maintain the grounds, upgrade the path network and stablish community focal points.

We are so grateful for your continued support,
From all at Viewpark Conservation Group
