Sometimes I wish i could just jump into that former pond on a hot summers day! Like this dog for example, having the time of his life! Stonefield Public Park has never been the same since this was removed……

Kelly Edgar I remember it well. I used to walk around the wall of the pond and got pushed in it by my cousin Christopher 😂. I also used to love going on the little pedal boats on the pond.
Moira Mulvaney Pacheco Was that the Boating pond
Carole M Castle I remember this pond with fond memories of my childhood x
Steven Lightbody It used to be emptied in winter, we would walk on the ice when the remaining water was frozen over!
Robert Stewart Disagree with you Paul on this one. The council building house in the park was the beginning of our beautiful public park’s decline. In the sixties the main entrance and the area around the memorial was the town’s pride and joy, it’s now a complete eyesore / dump.
Blantyre Project i’ll give you that, certainly! The arch is overshadowed by housing behind it, no focal point, and lack of gardens is a shame.
Marion Robertson has kindly let Blantyre Project have permission to use her cine video from 53 years ago. I hope you enjoy this beautiful family video of Stonef…
Liz Boxall its actually a wee canvas … the picture doesn’t do it justice… I will retake picture in day light and re post tomorrow so you get a better effect
