Britain's Best Park Award

Pollok Country Park has been voted the Best Park in Briatin 2007.
This is the first United Kingdom award and adds to a clutch of accolades the city's parks have already attracted including the Botanic Gardens winning Best Park in Scotland in 2006 and Auchinlea the Scottish Best Park Award in 2005.

I recently had a wonder round part of the park and took some photos.

Many people have visited the park and posted photos on Hidden Glasgow. Now that it has been recognised by this award maybe you would like to post some of your photos here and say why you like the park.

Pollok Country Park has been voted the Best Park in Briatin 2007.


shook :) wonder how much this was influenced by the Burrell collection being in park & the commercialisation of Pollok House. I feel the park is being developed more as commercial venture. Pollok Country Park has lost its country feel.

I go through the 'Pollokie' quite a lot on my way to Ibrox. It's an 'as the Crow flies' shortcut from Hillpark to Haggs Rd.........and, as an added bonus, I can drink my bevvy without needing to worry about Strathclydes' finest pouring it down a stank.
