Green Place

There is some etymological debate about where Glasgow gets it’s name from, but either of the common definitions refer to Glasgow as ‘green’ – something the city continues to live up to today. There are more than 100 parks across the city – from huge expanses like Pollok Park and Linn Park to tiny slithers of green space like Bennan Square or Beardmore Park. As I run the streets round them I’m trying to tick off all the parks I’ve been to as well.

Huge thanks to ‘Glasgow with Kids’ for compiling this list of 100+ parks in the city – more than any other website records. I’ve taken it in full as my checklist so thank you! Images from the parks are in the gallery below the list.
