News - May 2018

Along with representatives from other parks, the Friends of Kelvingrove Park have attended workshops as part of a consultation process about parks and green spaces across the city. You can view an early draft report on those workshops, and the full report produced by Pidgin Perfect for Glasgow City Council, should be completed soon.

Friends of Kelvingrove Park also has representation on the Glasgow Parks Forum which has the potential to be a useful bridge between parks managers and parks users.

KELVINGROVE BANDSTAND HISTORY - After many years of neglect, the Friends of Kelvingrove Park started a campaign to save the bandstand, which was then subsequently restored by Glasgow Building Preservation Trust with a great job done by the architects, funders and the contractors on the renovation.
The venue is now being run by Glasgow Life with a mix of community and live music events. You can read more about the Bandstand's history via this website.
