Lovely green park by the Clyde. May 02, 2017
Glasgow Green is the oldest park in the city of Glasgow. It is located on the north banks of the River Clyde in Glasgow's East End.

King James II gave the land that became Glasgow Green to Bishop William Turnbull and the people of Glasgow in 1450. At that time the Green was divided by the Camlachie and Molendinar Burns. The green was used as a grazing area, an area to wash and bleach linen and an area to dry fishing nets. Glasgow's first steamie, called The Washhouse, opened on Glasgow Green on the banks of the Camlachie Burn in 1732.

Nowadays Glasgow Green's attractions include: The People's Palace Museum, the McLennan Arch, monuments such as the Nelson Monument- a 43.5 m high column built in 1806, less than a year after Nelson's death at the Battle of Trafalgar.There are also several fountains such as the beautiful Doulton Fountain outside the People's Palace, and statues such as the statue of inventor James Watt who gained inspiration for some of his best works while strolling across Glasgow Green.
