Forgotten island

13 Jul 2011

The Forgotten Island is providing a temporary destination for children of all ages this summer. It disappears on 18th September, so don't forget to visit before then!

A unique new outdoor family arts experience is open to the public this summer, on the banks of the Clyde, next to the Riverside Museum. The Forgotten Island transforms 5,500m² of derelict land on the banks of the River Clyde into a thriving green space for families this summer.

Brought to Glasgow in association with leading children's art organisation, Glasgow based 'Giant', The Forgotten Island was inspired by the imaginations of children and local communities and developed by leading artists, gardeners and designers. The island has capacity for 500 visitors per day and hopes to attract individuals from across the UK.  The temporary arts destination will close on September 18th
2011.

Located on the North bank of the River Clyde, next to the new Riverside Museum, the temporary  island plays host an array of sensory areas which aim to inspire and engage on 6 key themes - nature, play, discovery, creativity, sustainability and community.
