The pond is situated approximately 3 miles north west of the City Centre and is bounded by Great Western Road, the car park of a Hotel, Shelley Road (Gartnavel Hospital) and the rear gardens of Whittingehame Drive. The pond, which is popular with local residents, visitors to Gartnavel hospital and guests. The pond was naturalised by Glasgow City Council in 2003, to help improve water quality and to attract a wider range of birds.
This has proved very successful with over 50 species of bird having now been seen at the pond and more importantly five different species of waterbird, including the tufted duck, settling down to breed. During the summer, they and their offspring have proven to be a great attraction, especially for younger visitors. Bingham’s Pond is also one of 46 City-wide Sites of Importance for Nature Conseration or SINC’s for short.
