Walled Garden, Rouken Glen, Glasgow

This morning, I took the opportunity for a brief walk around Rouken Glen, a 143 acre public park in south Glasgow, Scotland.

The popular open space offers a wide range of attractions and interests including:

  • Wildlife (birds).
  • Waterfalls.
  • Geology dating back 325m years.
  • Evidence of occupation by prehistoric man, from the Neolithic period, about 5000 years ago.
  • Industrial history.
  • Evidence of glaciation from >10,000 years ago.
  • Abundant parkland, which is popular with dog walkers.
  • Boating pond.
  • Stream.
  • Walled garden.
  • Children’s play area.
  • Wild garden.
  • Ranger led activities.
  • Adjacent golf course.

I was keen to capture the seasonal colours, particularly those illustrated in the well maintained walled garden which was, formerly, the vegetable garden of a since-demolished Victorian mansion.
