Park History

Bellahouston has been a Park since 1895.
Due to size - 174 acres - the Empire Exhibition of 1938 was staged in the Park.
Only the Palace of Art Building remains.
In March 1978, the IAAF World Cross Country Championships was held and in 1982.
The 1982 visit of Pope John Paul II was commemorated with a Mass in the park.
Bellahouston Sports Complex and the Glasgow Ski Centre are located in the Park.
The House for an Art Lover was opened in 1996 to celebrate the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Other facilities include pitch and putt, bowling, play areas, extensive walled gardens & a new maze.
The Womens’ Annual 10k Run in May finishes in the Park as does The Men’s Health Forum Father’s Day Run each June..
