Enter Bellahouston Park is a large and very important park in the city`s Southside.

This land was purchased for the city in 1896 and is centred around the steep-sided Bellahouston Hill, with the flatter parts used for gardens and sports facilities. There are also large open areas, so important in a busy and noisy city.

The following articles give a description of the park, notes on its history and information on some of its buildings.

1938 Empire Exhibition A large open air exhibition held just before the Second World War.
House for an Art Lover A building constructed to designs drawn by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Palace of Art The only building surving from the 1938 exhibition.
Walled garden A formal garden within the park.

Bellahouston Park`s walled garden is one of the few surviving remains of Ibrox Hill House.
