Re: rosshall gardens, cardonald

Hi, I live local to the gardens and as Alex said a friends of Rosshall group has been set up. It's still very much in it's infancy but I'm sure all involved will be doing their best to improve the situation.
I've got a history of Rosshall booklet which I'll try to scan and upload soon.

Does anyone remember the climbing frames and chute behind St Marks church? That big loud speaker shaped frame used to scare me sensless.

At the centre of the origional pic you can see the MacIntosh building. It used to form a wee court yard behind the old reception which has now been demolished.
