Would you like to know more about Glasgow’s sporting history and future?
Ged O’Brien, author of ‘Played in Glasgow’, has devised two walks through routes of sporting and architectural interest in Glasgow. The walks touch upon some of the many buildings and places in Glasgow that sport has given us, highlighting how sport has contributed greatly to placemaking within the city.
City and East End
Experience “the world capital of sport” as it grew from the bowling greens around the High Street to encompass the new urban areas of the Calton, Glasgow Green and Dalmarnock during the explosion of King Cotton and the rise of the engineering glory of the Clyde. The East End walk terminates at Dalmarnock Rail Station – allowing walkers easy return transport to the city centre or to take more time to explore the 2014 construction works around Celtic Park.
