Queen's Park Tap

Local fitness group 'Buggyfit' helped launch our Queen's Park Top up Tap. 

Located near to the Pollokshaws Road entrance, the public water refill point means park-goers have easy access to fresh, great-tasting Scottish water.
 
Georgina Reid, Scottish Water’s corporate affairs regional manager, said: “It’s fantastic to launch one of our Top up Taps in such an iconic location in the south side of Glasgow. We’re encouraging everyone to make the most of it when they spend time here – all they need to do is remember their reusable water bottle so that they can easily top up.
 
“Drinking water from a refillable bottle is good for your health, it's good for the planet by helping to reduce the volume of single-use plastic and it's good for your pocket too.” 

 

The new Top up Tap is a welcome addition to the park which is popular with people of all ages doing all different types of fitness and activities.

“Water is such an important and valuable part of our total wellbeing, having access to water in the park while doing our weekly Buggyfit sessions is a fantastic asset for participants. I love that it is environmentally friendly too!”
