Elder Park provides a valuable greenspace for the people of Govan.
The park has been a key feature of the area since its public opening on 27 June 1885 after it’s donation to the people of Govan by Isabella Elder.
The park contains a lot to see and do so why not follow the Elder Park Heritage Trail taking in features such as the John Elder statue, Category ‘A’ listed Elder Park library, George Wyllie statue in the middle of the pond and the ornamental Isabella Elder Rose Garden.
There really is a variety of things to see in this 37 acre park.
If you would like to include the park in a wider explore of the area why not follow the Entertaining Govan Walking Tour from the Govan’s Hidden Histories Project which features not only the park but also the surrounding area.
The Friends of Elder Park were founded in 2008 and in their own words
Elder Park was given to the people in Govan in 1885. We take care of that gift.
