We're delighted they will providing that very safe space for our upcoming National Park City event as well! [SAVE THE DATE: 2nd Sept]. And a beautiful place it is: a beautiful public oasis located in the Pollokshields area of Glasgow which provides a fantastic urban greenspace where you can relax away from the busy city streets, discover nature, get creative and connect with friends and neighbours.
The Hidden Gardens is an established inspiring greenspace and haven for wildlife and nature in the south side, open to all.

They support people to make friendships, improve their health and wellbeing through nature, art, volunteering and creativity.
As a greenspace they are open to the public, for free, on 6 days per week (check website for details).
