As Glasgow City Council develops the strategy for the city’s parks and green spaces across the next two years, they are looking to collect as many ideas and opinions, stories and suggestions as possible from park users to help shape their decisions.
Can you imagine a Utopian Dennistoun? East-Enders, young and old, have come together to explore this idea, creating short stories, monologues, characters, and songs which are inspired by the people and the place.
Alexandra Park is one of Glasgow’s most significant parks, one of four designed by Sir Joseph Paxton. The 104 acre park takes its name from Princess Alexandra, the wife of the future King Edward VII, who officially opened the Park in 1870. The highest point of the park gives views north to Ben Lomond and south to Tinto hills. The City Improvement Trustees purchased the park in 1866 from Mr Walter Stewart of Haghill.
