Rouken Glen Park is a public park in East Renfrewshire, to the south-west of Glasgow, Scotland.
The lands of Rouken Glen Park originally belonged to the Scottish Crown, and then to the Earl of Eglinton, presented to Hugh Montgomerie, 1st Earl of Eglinton on the marriage of his son in the year 1530 by James V. It takes its name from the old Rock End Meal Mill in the glen, which dates back to the early 16th century. The remains of the meal mill can be seen at the foot of the waterfall, deep within the foliage and rhododendron bushes high on the slope away from the pathway. Amongst the park's owners were Walter Crum of Thornliebank and Archibald Cameron Corbett, M.P. for Tradeston, Glasgow (later Lord Rowallan) who gifted the estate and mansion house to the citizens of Glasgow. It was officially opened on 25 May 1906 and leased in June 1984 to the then Eastwood District Council, whose area was later included by the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994 into East Renfrewshire in April 1996.

Brilliant park for all ages. Huge green grass areas for picnics or kicking a ball around etc. A large kids playground (which has recently been renewed and upgraded). The playground is suitable for kids of all ages. There are also Basketball and Skateboard / Scooter area's close to the playground. There are 2 sets of public toilets in the park, one next to the playground and the other next to the boating pond (behind the cafe). The boating pond cafe is great and not expensive at all. It's recently been renovated and the staff are really friendly and helpful. It has a really nice relaxing atmosphere looking on to the pond.

Easily the best local country park to go with friends and family. Great play area and so many other activities for kids. Lots of scenic walking paths. Great for dogs too. Must for fitness enthusiasts. Great for running and outdoor gym equipment installed at the park.

Great park. Lovely walks and beautiful pond. Good play park too. Always busy. Loads of dog walkers. Few places for a cuppa / bite to eat. Ranger centre worth a visit too.

Great Park for a family walk. Especially if you have kids, it has the best kids play parks I have seen which caters for different age groups. Nice duck pond and lots of woodland for a variety of walks.

Great fun for all the family, lots to see and do and easy to spend the full day here. Word of advice, we visited in September and had to leave early due to swarms of wasps. Be careful if you have little ones with you.
