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.

Current status:

The project was completed in 2008 and opened by Nicola Sturgeon, MSP.
