Client West Dunbartonshire Council
Value £3m
Location Strathclyde


Levengrove Park is a public park on a stretch of land where the River Leven meets the estuary of the River Clyde. West Dumbartonshire Council’s Greenspace section successfully won a Heritage Lottery Fund bid to restore the heritage of Levengrove Park under the ‘Parks for People’ programme. As a result, they were able to carry out the following works to upgrade the park.

Heritage restoration:

  • St Serfs Church
  • Shiers Well
  • Kilmahew Fountain and Cenotaph

Main entrance restoration included:

  • Reinstating the gates and posts
  • Installing replacement gates
  • Boundary wall repair
  • Replacement of the existing pavilion with a café, Park Ranger office/workspace
  • Improved access to the ground maintenance facility, disabled parking, new pedestrian access
  • New play area installation
  • Path improvements
  • Signage and interpretation installation
  • Seat and picnic bench installation
  • Lighting installation

The regeneration of the park included the construction of a new pavilion building with café and rangers office, the upgrading of an existing Council depot facility, upgrading of the paths, landscaping, and restoration of stonework and gates. 

In addition, an upgraded power and gas supply were needed.  This was co-coordinated by Covanburn to tie in with the overall construction plan.

As part of the upgrade, a new power and gas supply were needed, which Covanburn coordinated to tie in with the overall construction plan. New sewer connections were also required, so we installed a new rising main sewer, which connected to the existing Scottish Water Sewer.


The park remained open throughout the duration of the works, therefore stringent controls were needed to protect the public whilst moving plant and materials around the park.
