Shawlands Cross Civic Square

What is it?

As part of the roll out of further public realm works, the Action Plan proposes to create a new civic square for the Southside in front of Langside Hall which the partners believe could form the exciting heart of the emerging Cultural Quarter of Shawlands.

The Pollokshaws Road/Langside Avenue junction at Shawlands Cross is a space which is already home to Langside Hall the key civic building of the area, the Shed which has a long track record of club nights, live theatre, dance and craft events, Sweeney's on the Park is becoming a vital attraction for new song writers, and Glad Café is a destination for new experimental musicians, art, speakers and debate.

The Council believe the potential public space could provide a key attraction on the gateway to the city centre and Southside destinations. A well designed space also offers the potential to bring the Queens Park into the heart of the Shawlands town centre and bring more visitors to the area.
