Giving Nature a Home in Glasgow

Giving Nature a Home in Glasgow is all about reconnecting with nature.

Find out more information about how we're bringing nature back into our city.

Nature in Glasgow

Glasgow may be the biggest city in Scotland, with Greater Glasgow being home to more than a million people, but it has a wonderful array of green space. From the beautiful parks of Pollok and Kelvingrove to the tiny community gardens, small gap-sites and shared drying greens - the city is greener than you think.

But many people are unaware of the opportunities for getting close to nature in the city. And, as in cities and towns throughout the UK, children spend much of their time indoors, rather than out at play and exploring nature.  

Join us in connecting children, families and community groups to create a city-wide wildlife garden, and celebrate nature within Glasgow.
