Yorkhill Park is situated north of the River Clyde in the West End of the city. It was known for its famous neighbouring hospitals; the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Yorkhill and the Queen Mother’s Maternity Hospital. Both hospitals were relocated in June 2015 to the modern South Glasgow Hospital Campus in Govan.
The Kelvin Hall and the Glasgow Museum of Transport were likewise located close by in Yorkhill. The latter now part of the nearby Riverside Museum. The surrounding park area is mostly residential, with modern housing stock consisting of sandstone tenement housing built in the 20th century by the Overnewton Building Company.
The park is enriched by a dense canopy of mature trees and shrubs, transforming the park into a pleasant green urban area which forms part of the Kelvin Walkway.
Yorkhill Park also features a new development of flats at Centurion Way and features a modern children’s play park and growing space. The new housing development was officially opened on 19th August 2014 by the then Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.
