Our Children and Youth Development Centre is in the Kirkshaws area of Coatbridge on Scarhill Street and offers a wide range of facilities for our community.
The centre is currently open Monday to Friday from 9:00am – 9:00pm allowing children and families to extend their hours of play due to having access to toilets, café and first aid facilities.
Our Play Park is opened to the public 7 days per week from 9.00 am – 9.00 pm (10.00 pm during summer months).
We have recently installed 8 solar paneled lights in the park to help extend children and young people’s hours of play.
The park has areas for all ages ranging from sand area for 0-5 years up to dynamic play equipment for 12 plus years a multi use games area and 5 a side football pitch.
Facilities include raised beds, a poly tunnel, a potting shed and tools that can all be used at no cost.
The garden is used for growing food and as an educational space where community members and groups can learn the process through regular workshops and events designed at encouraging local food growing.
