A Gardens in Glasgow
The Green is by far the oldest of the city's parks. It is situated within walking distance of the city centre east of the Saltmarket. It is currently undergoing a renaissance with major investment through the Lottery Heritage Fund providing a catalyst for the redevelopment of the local neighbourhood. It has extensive open spaces, modern play facilities, vast winter gardens and historic People\'s Palace which allow the park to cater for all age groups whatever the weather.

To the east of George Square is the Merchant City, a fashionable place to eat, drink and play. Further east is the East End, a traditional working-class stronghold, and to the north is the oldest part of Glasgow, around the medieval cathedral. West of George Square is Buchanan Street, Sauchiehall Street and Argyle Street the city's principal shopping thoroughfares. From here the streets rise towards Blythswood Square, a much quieter area of elegant late Georgian buildings turned into offices. Beyond Charing Cross is the city's West End and home of some of the city's best museums.
