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.
In the past, The Womens’ Annual 10k Run each May finished in the Park as did The Men’s Health Forum Father’s Day Run each June.
