Country Parks in Glasgow

The dataset shows country parks situated within Glasgow City boundary. They include; Pollok, Cathkin Braes, Dams to Darnley and Drumpellier Country Parks.

Parks are set up by Local Authorities to provide open-air recreation facilities close to towns and cities. All the parks have a rural character and are managed primarily for informal recreation. Some have nature reserve areas and most have a visitor centre and ranger service to encourage and facilitate visitor understanding. Country Park is not a statutory designation. Countryside (Scotland) Act 1967 Section 48 gives local authorities power to assess and review the need for Country Parks in consultation with SNH. Data updated from source 2012-04-08
