Greater Govan & Glasgow Harbour, Govan


Langlands Path is the key pedestrian walkway linking Govan town centre with residential areas and key services, such as the library and health centre, in the west. Elderpark Housing Association completed very successful short term upgrade to improve the attractiveness and feeling of safety on the path. Major upgrade works which followed were part of the Central Govan action plan to create an appealing walking and cycle route that improves accessibility to and from the town centre. The upgrade is now complete.

Natural stone entrance ways at either end of the path defines the space and a series of engraved stone slabs, each depicting an aspect of Govan's rich history and character, have been placed along the length of the path. Existing diseased trees have been replaced with suitable alternatives and new lighting, planting, benches and bins complete the improvements.

Artist Kate Robinson created a timeline for Langlands Path which celebrated Govan's extraordinary history. The project involved gathering stories from local people. Find out more about the  public art project on Facebook.

Improvement works were developed in consultation with the local community.

Short term upgrade works carried out in 2009. Major upgrade works took place in 2013  incorporating artwork based on a timeline of Govan's history.
