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.
Walk through the new neighbourhoods of the South Side that grew up around Queens Park from the 1850s and became the cradle and nursery of world football and bowls. The South Side Walk will finish at Hampden Park, allowing walkers the chance to return to the City Centre by bus or train from Mount Florida or take a closer look at the National Stadium and Football Museum.
