Glasgow Green

by Jemma Fletcher (follow)
Fantastic place of nature right in the heart of Glasgow.

On the north bank of the River Clyde is Glasgow Green, which is by far the oldest of the city's parks and is situated within walking distance of the city centre.


As well as acres of space to explore, there's plenty of footpaths, a children's play area, orienteering course, and Clyde viewing platforms.

In addition, you can find the People's Palace here, which is the city’s museum of popular history. It's home to a collection of objects, photographs, prints and film which give a unique view into how Glaswegians lived, worked and played in years gone by to the present day.

You'll also find the Winter Gardens, which is filled with exotic palms and plants, as well as a cafe for a coffee and snack pick-me-up.

Step outside here and make a point of viewing the beautiful Doulton Fountain, which is a famous historic Glasgow landmark and the largest fountain ever constructed in ceramic.



Where: Greendyke Street, Saltmarket, Glasgow G1 5DB
