Glasgow Green is a park in the east end of Glasgow, Scotland, on the north bank of the River Clyde. Established in the 15th century, it is the oldest park in the city.
In 1450, King James II granted the parkland to Bishop William Turnbull and the people of Glasgow. The Green then looked quite different from the Green today. It was an uneven, swampy area made up of several distinct "greens" (separated by the Camlachie and Molendinar Burns): the High Green; the Low Green; the Calton Green; and the Gallowgate Green. In the centuries that followed, the parkland was used for grazing, washing and bleaching linen, drying fishing nets, and recreational activities like swimming. In 1732, Glasgow’s first steamie, called the Washhouse, opened on the banks of the Camlachie Burn.

Glasgow Green is a great place to visit. Caters for adults and children. Lots going on throughout the year. Pipe band competition, Last Night At the Proms, fairs, shows and sporting events. Great clubs for rowers to row the River Clyde and safety on the Clyde provided by the brilliant Glasgow Humane Society courtesy of George Parsonage and his team. George's family have been successfully providing this service for many, many decades and is still going strong. It also provides five-a-side football pitches and the new hockey stadium as used in the recent Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Glasgow Green has clearly had some local authority attention. Having lived in Glasgow and returning to visit, it was a delight to visit the green. Clean and well kept even at the end of a busy weekend puts of he British cities to shame. A dedicated dog walking enclosure and plenty of Space and outdoor play structured for the kids. Might even tempt me to move back.

great place for walking, cycling. Nice place for children. Very good playground for smaller children, it's like a ship, and also there is a space for bigger kids with sand and huge slides. This park is absolutely gorgeous in the spring time.

It's a good place to visit. Especially on a colder day in Glasgow. The green house keeps it nice and warm the museum is pretty interesting too. It's not far from the clyde river walkway. It's a nice walk on a good day.

I regularly book this place for the 5 a side pitches. There is generally availability which allows last minute booking. There are 8 5's pitches and of these, a-d have the newest surface and tend to have more bounce and are generally quicker but also seem bigger. And, if you are slightly older, then the same pitches may be more gentle on your body.

I love this park! There's a few play parks for kids, has the People's Palace and Winter Garden and is extensive, along the river. It also hosts many events through the year, has a boating club and is well maintained by the park staff. Whatever the weather, the park is a pleasant place to walk through and there is a feeling the whole city comes out to breath and relax when the sun comes out.

Large beautiful grass park area great for relaxing and strolling on a warm day. Fabulous large terracotta water fountain in the centre surrounded by bench seating (pity it wasn't working). Separate children's play area containing traditional swings and roundabouts.

Love Glasgow Green in the nice weather. Popped into botanic gardens to use the facilities which as always in the ladies there was a queue. Plenty of visitors inside and out. Always lots going on and plenty of benches for us folk who can no longer get from sitting on the grass.
