Old Station Park, Hyndland


Alan,

Can't find either of these - where are they?

Incidentally, while having a look for them on Google Maps/Street View, I noticed there are quite a few privately owned 'parks' in that area. It hadn't occurred to me that private parks existed in Glasgow, never mind that there are so many.

Quite contrarily, I had always assumed there were loads of them, and consequently wasn't sure if they should be counted or not.

Is Blythswood Square public land, for example? And the gardens behind Sauchiehall Street (the part of it opposite Newton Place) leading up to the start of Kelvingrove Park?

I think you're right, as far as I'm aware Beardmore Park isn't a GCC park.

No photographic evidence on this thread. Get those West End Festival photos out the cupboard.

There used to be a GCC sign at the entrance shown in the above image. No idea where the sign has gone to but def still a GCC park.

McPhun's Park, Dassie Green or Daisy Green is located at the south east end of Glasgow Green beside the Flesher's Haugh Football Centre of Excellence. It is less well used than other areas of the Green conveying a sense of peace and tranquillity.

It was the home of the Springtime Sculpture, the Watt Statue and Bird Table all of which had been vandalised due to the remoteness of the site. After restoration they were moved to more prominent locations in the Winter Garden Enclosure.

The Highland Light Infantry War Memorial remains intact. The memorial is a tall celtic cross with simple and elegant knotwork. Battle honours are listed at the base; Gallipoli, Egypt, Palestine, France, Belgium and Mesopotamia. A plain inscribed panel inset into a white granite base reads:


"To the Glorious memory of Officers, Non-commissioned Officers and Men 7th Blythswood Battalion of the Highland Light Infantry who fell in the Great War 1914-18.
Erected by comrades and Friends."

The war memorial was restored in time for the Remembrance Service held on Sunday 07 November 2005.

The park once featured a wagon wheel arrangement of rose beds. The path pattern was changed to create a central, robust stone spiral in blocks of ancient Scottish gneiss, a feature which interprets special dates in the development of Glasgow and Glasgow Green. It is laid out in a spiral which the public can walk into, tracing their steps backwards in time to a central stone feature


Ooops, Is this the one you mean, Mori? :oops:

McPhun's Park, Dassie Green or Daisy Green


Yep thats the one HH thanks for that, can always rely on your expertise mate, i was born and lived in the blonde tenament housing block right behind that photy, i'll need to take a trip up there to see how the area has been upgraded, a lot of the fountians and monuments in that area were always vandalised and neglected as far as i can remember, :D cheers matey.
