Hydration is a Walk in the Park!

03 March 2020
Staying hydrated is a walk in the park for visitors to Strathclyde Country Park now that our 23rd Top Up Tap has been installed in the popular North Lanarkshire park.
 
Located near to the East Gate, just outside Strathclyde Park Watersports Centre, the state-of-the-art public water tap means park users can top up with fresh, great-tasting Scottish water at the touch of a button helping them to stay hydrated on the go.

Top Up From The Tap at Strathclyde Country Park

“Topping up from the tap benefits health and wellbeing, saves money, and helps reduce waste and its impact on the wider environment.” ”

Corporate Affairs Regional Manager
Speaking at the official launch on Tuesday 3 March, Ruaridh MacGregor, Scottish Water’s corporate affairs regional manager, said: “It’s fantastic to see our Top Up Tap here in one of the most popular family attractions in Scotland’s central belt. The tap is free to use and we’re encouraging everyone to make the most of it when they’re spending time here in the park – all they need to do is remember their reusable water bottle so that they can top up with ease. Topping up from the tap benefits health and wellbeing, saves money, and helps reduce waste and its impact on the wider environment.” 

Together with members of Strathclyde Loch Sailing Club and Strathclyde Loch Rowing Club, Councillor Michael McPake, Convener of the Environment and Transportation Committee, helped mark the tap launch. Speaking at the event, he said: “Strathclyde Country Park is one of Scotland’s top attractions and welcomes thousands of visitors every year, from dog walkers and families, to keen cyclists and watersports enthusiasts. The new Top Up Tap, offering a refreshing drink of Scottish water free of charge, will be a welcome and very popular addition to the facilities here at the park.”
