Visitor Information

  • Entry to the Gardens is only via the Pollokshaws Road entrance; please follow the green line painted on the pedestrian walkway, towards the gate entry to the Gardens.
  • Our neighbours, Tramway, are closed so unfortunately there will be no access to toilets, indoor shelter, Tramway café or Tramway bar.
  • Our plant kiosk is open, with an honesty box for plants and wishing tree tags. Contactless payments via our website donations page are also accepted. Bring a pen to draw/write a wish tag for the wishing trees. Your wish will eventually be composted and forever be held in the gardens.

We hope your visit provides much-needed fresh air and respite; come rain or shine!
