Overview

Join Keep Scotland Beautiful's Heritage Officer Lisa Snedden on a trail across Glasgow visiting some of the lesser known parks that shaped how people spent their leisure time then and now. On the trail you will also visit and find out about It's Your Neighbourhood Groups and Green Flag Award Parks, two of Keep Scotland Beautiful's activities. You will hear from volunteers about the parks and about participating in these activities.

This is a linear trail that ends in Yorkhill where there are plenty of transport links. You can complete the trail from start to finish which will take around 2 hours or why not just visit a couple of the parks and spend some time exploring and playing in the parks.
