However, it has been stressed that the park itself remains open to both walkers and cyclists - who must respect guidelines on social distancing and must not congregate in groups.

The measures also apply to the other car parks in ‘green lungs’overseen by North Lanarkshire Council’s arms length trust.

These are Drumpellier Country Park in Coatbridge and Palacerigg Country Park in Cumbernauld.
