Lost Glasgow – Park Life

Day: Monday
Time: 7:30 pm
Booking Necessary: Yes

In a year of lockdowns and isolation, Glasgow’s public parks have proved a lifesaver for many, as places to meet, socialise, exercise, and escape. From the city’s ancient Glasgow Green, through Victorian pleasure gardens, to more modern play areas, Glaswegians have always revelled in their Dear Green Places.

Join Lost Glasgow’s Norry Wilson, as he uses vintage photographs to explore the city’s long love affair with its parks. Often, today’s weans play in the very same parks their grandparents once enjoyed. From the Glasgow Fair to public protests, our parks have provided a stage and a backdrop to almost every event in the city’s history. It’s a tale of civic pride, swings and roundabouts, skint knees, runny noses, first kisses, and huge, 20-a-side football matches.
And, remember, what happens up the park, stays up the park…
