Linn Park is the greatest place in Glasgow for children of all ages - from prams to those with bikes.

There are four Play Areas:

  • By Netherlee Hall in Linn Park Avenue - with parking,
  • Near the Seil Drive entrance off Old castle Road: NO parking . . .
  • Behind the Mansion House in the park: NO access by car - but a great place for adventurous kids.
  • The Adventure Playground off Netherlee Road [Weekends only] - with plenty of parking.

A few notes for parents and dog walkers ....

One of the biggest causes of blindness in children arises when they rub their eyes having touched dog mess. It is a fact of life, but we can all do a lot to prevent it:

  • Glasgow City Council promote the Your Dog Your Mess, Bag it and Bin it,
  • East Renfrewshire Council promote something similar,

If you see a dog which has made a mess and which the walker has failed to spot, please let them know IMMEDIATELY.
