Rouken Glen Park, at 143 acres, is one of the largest parks in Scotland and in the top 10 most visited.
It has been a major attraction for over 100 years due to its outstanding woodland paths, dramatic waterfalls, rolling parkland, pond and picturesque walled garden. It is also one of the most important geological sites in Scotland and part of the glen is designated a site of special scientific interest because it contains the only surviving exposures of the fossil-rich orchard beds in the Glasgow basin, around 325 million years old.
Rouken Glen Park is home to a number of interesting places and businesses including:
The park has an outstanding Rangers' Service who can provide advice and assistance to everyone using the park. They are based at the Pavilion visitor centre and have a programme of acitivities for local groups and schools. The Rangers can also advise on volunteering activities within the park.
