I love living in this friendly area. One thing I’d like residents to do, is take care of “their section” of pavement/kerbside outside their house. This would help with street drainage issues if everyone can clear the leaves. If everyone clears a...

The traffic particularly on Ravenswood and Dinmont but also St Ronans and Durward really impacts the neighborhood negatively. The worst of the speeding is through traffic and I think it could be largely prevented by closing the junction at Dinmont...

Waverley park is a great place to live and could be even better with traffic calming measures, such as speed bumps or pavements widened at certain points. We would be fully supportive of measures like this. However, road closures of Dinmont and Du...

I love living in Waverley Park. The only changes I would like to see are to stop the area being used as a rat run and speeding. Parking is an issue at the start and end of the school day near the primary. I have witnessed several conflicts betwe...

Fantastic community spirit. Friendly residents who stop and say hello. Play out days, Halloween window and advent windows are examples of lovely events.

Witnessing the traffic at the junction of Woodstock and Ravenswood never fails to disappoint. Constant speeding, crazy manoeuvring and excessive volumes are a daily occurrence. Our kids walk to school and there is always a nervousness about them c...

Would like to see more active travel friendly routes to our local parks (Pollok especially) and Shawlands. The traffic on Ravenswood/ Dinmont makes using this route a non starter for family cycling. Lockdown #1 showed what it could be like if the ...

The lanes are a wonderful asset. Being able to let the kids out the back gate and into a safe environment is fantastic. They could be improved with more limited vehicle access (esp bin lorries). Would love to see the lanes of Dinmont and Ravenswoo...

The Halloween house decorations were absolutely awesome. It was a real demonstration of the whole community being involved. It was lovely to be able to walk around admiring the super effort so many had put into it, such creativity. I walked around...

Waverley Park has the potential to be a great place to live but there are issues that need to be addressed to allow that potential to be fully realised. There’s no getting away from the fact that there is a major issue with through traffic. With ...

Suggestion for the website. It would be useful if the experiences and the ideas placed on the interactive map could have 👍 and 👎 options so that the feelings of others can be gauged. Otherwise we are likely to end up with very busy map and exp...

Waverley park is a lovely, friendly area with great shops and cafes on the doorstep. However, the speed and volume of traffic is a major concern. School drop off times can be problematic, could families of school pupils living in the catchment are...

Highlight experiences in WP have to be the play outs - seeing people of all ages out on the roads playing, dancing, sitting, cycling, eating, chatting.. Obviously these can only be occasional events, but it makes you wonder if any of this could be...

We like to cycle to Pollok Park as a family from our house, as do many others in the neighbourhood. The safest route to take the children on requires carrying all the bikes up/down the steps under the railway bridge at Shawlands Station. The effor...

Our children play out in the lanes of our block without adult supervision, sometimes with other children from the block. This is such a lovely aspect of life here, and feels particularly special that they can do this in an urban setting. It would ...

The daily walk to school (when open!) is a lovely opportunity to see neighbours and stop for a chat. The two difficult parts of this very short and otherwise pleasant journey are crossing Ravenswood (perilous, especially with multiple children and...

The charter of children to and from school is such a wonderful feature of the area, particularly in Ravenswood, Peveril and Woodstock, but all over. It would be great if they felt that the streets were interesting and safe to play in for longer af...

During lockdown, kids were using Ravenswood Drive to scooter up and down and to cycle. It was such a joy to see how the street could be used differently
