We love Glasgow in bloom… sigh
It’s no secret that we love Glasgow. A lot.
But sometimes even we are at a loss for words to truly describe our appreciation for this ‘dear green place’.
So this week we’ll let some of Glasgow’s impressive street art do the talking.
If a picture’s worth a thousand words – these would definitely include ones like inspiring, captivating, clever and even energising.
Next time you’re out, go on play a game of I spy. Keep your eyes open for the impressive street art transforming our city into a colourful collage of vibrant wonder.
Discover and enjoy!
A gem of green tranquillity
It’s hard believe this gem of green tranquillity exists in the city. Here, surrounded by lush foliage, my shoulders relax, my mind clears and the open space embraces me. It’s certainly come a long way from its early days as Copelawhill Tram Works – now beautifully transformed from a 5000 square metre derelict brownfield site into a peaceful haven.
Magical and mischievous
There’s a lot to explore – follow footpaths, bridges or like my son dart in and out of hidden areas to discover the many wee sculptures or give one of the instruments a go.
We even discovered a talking hedge – kind of. So, it actually turns out to be a few rascals concealed in the middle of some bamboo rather than the gateway to Narnia. Even still, it’s a truly enchanting escape from the hub-bub of the city.
But this wonderful space is more than a moment of tranquillity. There’s loads of activities to try out from the Cultural Kitchen to various family activities. If you’re feeling under the weather, there’s a Medical and Cultural Courtyard to revive and rejuvenate in. Maybe you’ll even find that gateway to Narnia and have a chat with a talkative hedge.
