Govanhill Community Garden seeks advice on improving access for disabled people.

Govanhill Community Garden situated beside Samaritan House on Coplaw Street was developed and made available for the community to use at the beginning of 2016. The garden was developed as a place of rest and relaxation, as a training centre to help people learn more about horticulture and also to give disabled people a chance to get physically active and enjoy the outdoors.

However due to stairs and uneven paths disabled people are unable to get into the garden independently, or around it.  It requires urgent improvement to make it accessible to all members of the community.

The above video shows some of the access issues for disabled residents.

The garden members are keen to hear from you on materials that could be used for the paths to make them friendlier?

Also, any information on suitable ramps that could be used in place of the stairs currently in the garden too.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated! Please contact Sooside Bloomers at
