For World Health Day 2023 I’m going to share some photographs from a wander around my local park. I had planned to write a more detailed post about the history of the park and how it’s used today, but I’ll save that for another day. Today, on World Health Day, we can just enjoy the natural beauty of one of Glasgow’s dear green places.
Glasgow’s nickname is ‘dear green place’, derived from the Gaelic “Glaschu” which means green hollow or green glen. (Visit Scotland) We’re proud to have maintained so many parks, gardens and green spaces within the city. According to People Make Glasgow we have access to over 90 across the city. So today, we’ll be visiting Bellahouston Park on Glasgow’s south west.
I’ve also just discovered that the city is on the list of the top 10 in the Global Destination Sustainability Index. #6 in 2022.
I hope you’ve enjoyed sharing my wander around Bellahouston Park (This is only about half of the park). I visited and took these photos on 6th April and you can see we were still waiting for Spring to arrive.
If you’ve not already signed up for my blog, this might be a good opportunity so you don’t miss out on my follow up posts telling you more about some of the features within the park.
