Glasgow Green (Glasgow)

Glasgow Green is a historic park in Glasgow.

The main entrance is in Greendyke Street, in the Calton district, not far from the City Centre.

The common land was given to the people of Glasgow by Bishop Turnbull in 1450, and for centuries was the city`s only public open space.

Today, covering 136 acres, the park has a wide variety of landscapes, architectural attractions and cultural and sporting activities.

Among the features are Winter Gardens, the Football Village, Nelson`s Column and the museum known as the People`s Palace. The Doulton Fountain was moved to the green in 1890, having been originally at the 1888 International Exhibition at Kelvingrove Park.
