There’s lots and lots to do in and around our parks during the coming weeks. Take a look at what’s going on…
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.
Alexandra Park festival takes place on Saturday 25th July from 12pm until 4pm. Entry is free to all.
