The Douglas Support is a great place full of wildlife.  Local people of all ages go walking and also fishing on a daily basis.  It is full of historic interest.  Some of which are the remains of the historic douglas support that was once there.

Viewpark Glen ( the Douglas Support Estate) has been an important part in the lives of many of the residents of viewpark and Coatbridge, many children have had their adventures there, and is the last peice of natural woodland/green space left in the area.  The area is still used by dog walkers, bird watchers and many who just enjoy being in nature.  

This petition has been started in the hope of putting a halt to the destruction of this historic sight, also we need to keep natural habitat for the wildlife and preserve this place of beauty.  

Archaeology scotland have shown an iterest in this area,  we need time to get the surveys done to allow the documentation of the historical sights within this glen. 

Local residents use this for walks and cycle rides which is a vital part to help encourages a healthy lifestyle .

As a deprived area  there is not a lot of things that the people can do free of charge the glen is something that brings hours of joy to many.,
