Glasgow Green is the city`s oldest park and it is steeped in history. This makes a fitting site for the People`s Palace, the museum of Glasgow.

The Green is in the East End and lies on the northern bank of the River Clyde, making it one of the city`s favourite recreation areas for centuries. It has also played an important role in the culture and politics of the city.

The open spaces of Glasgow Green are near the historic centre of the city. The building on the far left is The High Court of Justiciary; to its right is the tall Merchants` Steeple; on the far right of the picture is the tall tower of St Andrew`s Parish Church.
