Greater Govan & Glasgow Harbour, Govan
The Pacific Garden was created to regenerate a disused sports
area near Carmichael Street which had been plagued in the past with
anti-social behaviour, graffiti, drinking and fly tipping.
This regeneration project has proved a major success in
turning round anti-social behaviour in a Glasgow community.
Strathclyde Police figures from the last three months show a 46%
reduction in disorder offences by young people in the Pacific
Garden area compared with last year.
The garden has transformed a disused space into a lovely garden
that brings the community together.
The project was completed in 2008 and opened by Nicola Sturgeon,
completed June 2008
Between 2003 and 2014 Clyde Waterfront was a strategic
partnership comprising the Scottish Government, Scottish
Enterprise, Glasgow City, Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire
Councils. Its purpose was to promote the economic, social and
environmental regeneration of 13 miles of the River Clyde from
Glasgow city centre to Dumbarton.
