The Craig is a dedicated £3.7 million public park and green space that is available for everyone to enjoy, located next to the Ravenscraig Sports Facility. The first section of the park opened in summer 2021, providing a safe and fun space for recreation and exercise that can be enjoyed by the community and families.
With climbing walls, trampolines, swings, bouncing discs and even a climbing tower, there are plenty of exciting things to do at The Craig. Accessible facilities on site for children and young people with mobility issues ensure that The Craig is an open and safe space for everyone in the community.
Over the next two years, we look forward to working with local schools to offer valued work experience and placements. The café kiosk (Food Lover Café) within The Craig is now open and is operated by two students from New College Lanarkshire which helps support the local economy by providing employment opportunities to young people.
The Craig was formally opened by HRH The Princess Royal on 11th March 2022.
