Map of Glasgow - Dawsholm Park MapTerrain description

Dawsholm Park could well be described as ‘the nature lover’s park’ as there is much of interest to the nature enthusiast here. Large areas of the park have been left in a natural state.

STAG first used this park in 1999 for a Night Event and it proved to be a resounding success.

The NEW permanent orienteering course consists of 10 wooden control posts & available early 2017.

A tricky venue despite its relatively small size.

Rhododendron clearance completed.

Park History:

72 acres in area.
Significant wildlife including grey squirrels.
Area left in natural state.
Woodland predominately oak and beech.
Kelvin Walkway accessible from NE corner of park.
Play area.
