Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Settling pond doubles as chill out area

Only in Glasgow…

Would you find a settling pond complete with floating boom and life ring being used to provide a corporate chill out area:

Sorry about the fence wire, but the spacing was so tight even with the lens touching, it couldn’t be avoided. And I’ve yet to play with some software for cleaning this sort of thing up automatically – doing it manually… waaaaaaay too long.

Maybe the area has to be this secure to keep the smack-heads and winos out, or security would have to be there 24/7 keeping them off the ‘comfy seats’ and nice view.

Find this on Polmadie Road, at these offices:

Don’t take this the wrong way, I think it’s a fun use of a feature that’s there anyway.

These settling ponds and drainage areas seem to be a feature of many new builds I have visited recently, many in domestic housing areas, and they’re generally neglected and left to grow wild. Fenced off for safety, so can’t be maintained or kept tidy, they are often little eyesores in the midst of otherwise tidily kept areas around the new houses.
