Rouken Glen Park

UK»Scotland»Strathclyde»Rouken Glen Park

Rouken Glen Park is an area of approximately 227 acres which takes its name from the old Rock End Meal Mill in the glen, which dates back to the early 16th century. The remains of the meal mill can be seen at the foot of the waterfall deep within the foliage and rhodedendron bushes high on the slope away from the pathway. There are also a number of casual footpaths in the glen known as The Glen Walks where many people can have a mini ramble down by the burn and up into the higher areas on interest in the park. There are various historical sites within the park such as The Devil's Staircase and The Printer's Stone. There is also the Walled Garden with its wide range of plants, shrubs and trees and the beautiful range of colours when the summer and spring bedding is in full bloom. Park rangers are on hand to discuss some of the notable trees and wildlife to be found in the park.
