Glaschu: Dear Green Place

Glasgow has more park space per head of population than any other city in the UK. Here is a roundup of the parks as found in geograph.

See Glasgow City Council's websiteExternal link for a more comprehensive description.

Glasgow Green

On the banks of the Clyde, close to the city centre, this is Glasgow's oldest park, dating back to the 15th century. The original home of Rangers FC, the park was recently renovated and is enjoying a resurgence in popularity with Glaswegians and visitors alike. It plays host to major events such as the World Pipe Band Championships, marathons, bike races, concerts fireworks displays and the annual Glasgow Fair carnival each July.

Kelvingrove Park

In the heart of the West End, as the name suggests, on the banks of Glasgow's 'other' river, the Kelvin. Opened in 1852 as the West Park, this is arguably the finest of Glasgow's many parks. It played host to three major exhibitions around the turn of the 19th-20th century.
