Map of Glasgow - Bellahouston Park MapGlasgow - Bellahouston Park Map

Permanent course now repaired & map updated. Re-launched in 2017.

There is a permanent orienteering course here.

Information about the area.

The 1985 GPS event was followed 4 years later by the 1st Glasgow Parks Summer Series and more recently for thematic and night events.

16 controls make up the permanent course which will take about 60 minutes to walk round. Undergrowth should not be a big issue in the Summer months.

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.
