The much-loved facility – which celebrated its 30th anniversary of being a designated Country Park this year – is set to undergo some changes to help it flourish for families and communities across North Ayrshire.
To achieve this the Council are creating Eglinton County Park’s Woodland Management Plan.
They want people to come forward with some ideas and opinions to help them produce a rounded and comprehensive plan.
The Council has organised a walkabout at Eglinton Park on Sunday, 4 September at 1.30pm to discuss various options while taking in the beauty of the much-loved facility.
Park Manager Cameron Sharp said: “Natural woodlands are wonderfully rich places, full of the sight and sounds of birds, butterflies and wild flowers as well as trees of all types and stages of life.
“Carefully managed woodlands offer plenty of safe opportunities for a wide range of recreational and educational activities and are a very important part of our landscape.
“Most of the Eglinton woodlands have been planted over the last 30 years. There now exists a short window of opportunity to actively manage the woodlands to significantly improve them for a wide range of public, environmental and economic benefits.
“We recognise a long-term plan for the woodlands needs to be drawn up and are really keen for people to share their views and opinions because this is their park after all.”
There is also a survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/EGparkwoodlandsurvey with five questions that people are being asked to answer.
