Thanks to everyone for their attendance & in particular Scott & Alastair for helping me bring in the controls & welcome to Malcolm in his new role as Orienteering Liaison Officer from SportScotland.

Apology for “42”, I wasn’t obviously concentrating when I put the controls out & that was in daylight.

Entries for King’s Park by Thursday 12th November please.

Remember entries for GPChamps on Sunday 6th December available on line or I can enter you physically if you confirm Age Class & pass the relevant entry fee to me.

Map of Glasgow - Bellahouston Park MapTerrain description

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

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.

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..
