Glasgow Green

[McLennan Arch, Glasgow Green]

Flanking the River Clyde east of central Glasgow, Glasgow Green is known as "the people's park" and is the city's oldest - first granted to residents in 1450. The flat lawns might be rather featureless if it weren't for grand monuments such as the Doulton Fountain and Nelson Monument. Pride of place is the People's Palace: a grand museum backing onto a massive glasshouse. The park has a busy schedule of concerts and other events, but outwith these times it's a very pleasant place for stroll, especially if the sun's shining.
