Due to problems with public disorder on hot sunny days, various gates to Kelvingrove Park have been locked shut. Evidently, this is not a popular policy.

Nothing to warn NCN756 and West City Way users that there is a locked gate preventing egress from Kelvingrove Park ahead, and that the nearest way out is onto Kelvingrove Street to the right.

Due to problems with public disorder on hot sunny days, various gates to Kelvingrove Park have been locked shut. This is one of the gates that was supposed to be left open, yet it is chained and locked shut. Simple for me to divert aroun ... [more]

Due to problems with public disorder on hot sunny days, various gates to Kelvingrove Park have been locked shut. No disorder was noted in the park today.

Kelvin Way closed to motor traffic to allow more room for walking and cycling. Nothing to say that the road closure is exempting cycles, but people seem to have got the message regardless. Unusually, one of the parking bays extends into ... [more]

The popup closure of Kelvin Way to motor traffic has created space for walking and cycling.

The popup closure of Kelvin Way to motor traffic has created space for walking and cycling.

The popup closure to motor traffic of Kelvin Way has created space for walking and cycling, since Kelvingrove Park has been very busy. It is usually solid with parked cars and motor traffic passing through.

A popup road closure of Kelvin Way to motor traffic through Kelvingrove Park, to create space for walking and cycling instead.

NCN75 busy at Glasgow Green.

Steps at Edinburgh Rd on path between Cranhill Park and housing (weren't marked on OSM).

Steps down to path between Cranhill Park and houses. Could have a ramp at side to make it accessible. In distance is a new entrance path into park – smooth tarmac but only 1m or so wide.

No dropped kerb at this entrance to Maxwell Park. It would suit a raised crossing across to the station entrance opposite.

Evidence of a desire line through the park from Kelvinhaugh Street to Corunna Street, avoiding Argyle Street. From Corunna Street there is a de facto quietway to the city centre via the Skypark path.

A puddle on the West City Way in Kelvingrove Park.

Route signs for the Seven Lochs Trail at Avenue End Road. The path connection across the other side is not so great, but the signs point the way into Hogganfield Park.

Still no dropped kerb at Pinkston Road to join the path between the M8 motorway and the former Sighthill Park. The new location for the Sighthill standing stones can be seen to the right.

No crossing from the exit from Robroyston Park to the shared footway on the east side of Robroyston Park. The footway on the near side is not shared-use.

Path from Claddens Quadrant over to Ashfield Street.

Unsurprisingly, people want to go to the crossing. More tyre tracks in Househill Park.

A path junction in Househill Park.

The main path in Househill Park.

A worn path in the grass approaching one of the few formal paths in Househill Park

Tyre tracks ahead in Househill Park.

Tyre tracks (not mine) in the grass in Househill Park. This park could do with a few more formalised paths.

Just as I was about to leave Victoria Park, I noticed this bollard emblazoned "Park Cycle Route End".

Access between Elder Park and Drive Road hindered by a railing, yet signed (in tiny writing) for cycling.

Signs at the junction of NCN7/75 and the riverside path in Rosshall Park.

A complete lack of signage at the turn in the Glasgow-Paisley cycle route, although the route ahead links to the same place if you know where you are going.

The sign in #33288 still standing defiantly!

A complete lack of signage, save for some dilapidated Sustrans stickers, at the left turn into Rosshall Park.

Faded route signs pointing in random directions.

There were no signs for the Drumchapel Way at the junctions at either end of Hecla Avenue, only this one midway along the street.

The optimist in me wants to believe that this section of the Drumchapel Way path is currently being upgraded.

Navigation on the off-road sections of the Drumchapel Way is by marker post. Here the posts indicate a turn to the right.

The Drumchapel Way leaves Southdeen Avenue and doubles back into the Garscadden Burn Park.

The new cycle track in Lincoln Avenue, past the new BMX centre in Knightswood Park. This bit looks like it may be prone to flooding.

Car parking in the under construction cycle track in Archerhill Road, opposite the, erm, car parking layby.

A path into Todds Well, part of the Seven Lochs Wetland Park. http://sevenlochs.org/

The BMX Centre under construction at Knightswood Park. Bigger than I thought.

A new cycle route under construction on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. The entrance to the new BMX Centre, showing something close to a continuous footway across the entrance roadway.

A new cycle route under construction on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. I think the cycleway is to be segregated from the road using orcas or similar.

A new cycle route under construction on Archerhill Road, leading to the BMX Centre at Knightswood Park. A staggered pedestrian crossing across the road (signalled) and cycleway (probably zebra). I think the cycleway is to be segregated w ... [more]

Richmond Park closed, why not visit Glasgow Green? Well, the Polmadie Bridge is down for starters.

Cycle parking at the bowling green pavilion. The new cycle route from Jura Street will be coming through here. A path behind the camera provides a useful route through a car park to the nearby sports centre.

I'm guessing that as part of the proposed cycle route along Jura Street, this entrance to Bellahouston Park will be rebuilt to include a wider gate and better path around the back of the bowling green pavilion.

The proposed cycleway for Jura Street will be on the left side, and end at a toucan crossing across Paisley Road West to Bellahouston Park. So this door-zone cycle lane will be removed.

Cycle parking at the more popular side of the People's Palace and Winter Gardens.

Cycle parking on one side of the People's Palace and Winter Gardens.

Signage for the cycle parking at the People's Palace.

The entrance to Richmond Park now doubles as the construction site entrance. NCN756 is unuseable since there is no way through to the riverside other than the steps next to Rutherglen Bridge (see #95375).

Looking through the compound gate, a new road has been built through what was Richmond Park. I don't suppose that row of trees on the right is staying much longer.

Give way to construction traffic in Richmond Park.

Part of Richmond Park has been sold off by the council to a housing developer.

The route through Richmond Park has been shut due to the council selling much of the park to a housing developer. No diversion signed.

The signed route finally reaches the remaining part of Richmond Park.

Good filtered permeability in parts of the new Richmond Gate housing development, but wouldn't it have been better to provide a raised crossing (as at nearby #95369) for this path between the park and the houses?

I'm not really sure what the point of this sign is.

The northern footway of Govan Road, between Harvie Street and Pacific Drive, has been rebuilt as shared use, including a marked buffer zone between it and the carriageway. However, the dropped kerb for anyone exiting Festival Park now has a ... [more]

Having been prevented from going into Richmond Park by the housing construction, path users now have no option but to use the steps up to Shawfield Drive.

NCN756 blocked off at Richmond Park, part of which has been sold off for a housing development. The path to the left leads to a flight of steps.

The path beyond the fence in #95371 has already been built, but isn't being maintained since it is within a construction site.

The path into Richmond Park doesn't actually connect to the main part of the path at the moment due to further house building.

Stud lighting on the path into Richmond Park.

A raised crossing leading into Richmond Park.

The Fastlink busway was built without any dropped kerbs outside the Festival Park gate, hindering cycle access between the Science Centre and Festival Park. The footway here is to be converted to shared use.

The northern footway of Govan Road is being rebuilt for shared use.

The path through Greenbank Park is much improved, but takes a detour around the Harriet Place flats to get to Barrhead Road.

The path through Greenbank Park takes a detour around the Harriet Place flats. There are no cycle facilities on the adjacent and direct Nether Auldhouse Road.

A resurfaced path in Greenbank Park, now part of the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route.

Upgraded bridge across the Auldhouse Burn.

The Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route crosses the zebra crossing across Auldhouse Road, then heads up Holeburn Road.

These steps may not look like a cycle route, but the route through Yorkhill Park is listed on the council's GIS system as a cycle route!

The kerb shown in #65650 has had an asphalt ramp added so what was meant to be a high quality gateway now looks a bit botched! A bollard has been removed and the motorists are taking advantage of the unenforced double yellows.

A sign giving directions to Glasgow Green, but the bridge has been taken away, meaning that the best direction now is to the right joining the signed diversion.

Routes through what was Sighthill Park closed due to redevelopment, and the bridge over the motorway is getting replaced at some point too. More information at www.glasgow.gov.uk/sighthill

Since the cycle route is closed for the next 3 years while Sighthill is redeveloped, it might be an idea to take down or cover up this sign. The park is no more, so take those signs away at the same time.

New path in Kelvingrove Park, providing shortcut to NCN756, and passing playground.

Playground next to new cycle path in Kelvingrove Park, but people walking on the grass around barriers, and path itself largely regarded as part of play area.

New path with blind corner at end, in Kelvingrove Park.

New path (behind the hedge) in Kelvingrove Park, providing a shortcut to NCN756, although as yet not signed as such. Very popular with pedestrians, but the sign says it's a cycleway.

A path undergoing reconstruction, with installation of lighting, in Cardonald Park.

Last month this was a nice flat entry to #Glasgow's main city park. No more. Why? #Cycling #dedesign. @copenhagenize http://t.co/z5PgYtlCFj

No gritting of active travel routes in Glasgow. This is Dalsholm Road in Dawsholm Park after much of the ice elsewhere had melted in the sun. This section suffers from poor drainage (see nearby photos) and the water runs down the hill to th ... [more]

No gritting of active travel routes in Glasgow. This is Dalsholm Road in Dawsholm Park after much of the ice elsewhere had melted in the sun.

Cycle parking at the People's Palace Winter Gardens café in Glasgow Green.

No dropped kerb at the foot of ramp. This is the way cyclists coming over the St Andrew's Suspension Bridge would come if heading for the Morrison's supermarket at Gallowgate.

Perhaps a bit late to be telling cyclists coming down the hill in King's Park to go slow!

A cycle parking stand next to a park bench in King's Park.

The Auldhouse Road exit from Greenbank Park is blocked by a railing and there is no dropped kerb, although the road closure opposite on Holeburn Road has a cycle gap.

A glass-strewn path in Cowlairs Park, and all the council is worried about is lorries!

Another commute picture; Kelvingrove Park looking towards Glasgow University. http://t.co/HpXsYox7gq

A nice straight through transition between the road and the new park entrance.

Large tree root causing path surface to bulge in Elder Park

Kissing gate at Caldercuilt Road entrance to Maryhill Park, with cycle signage UPDATE: This gate has since been replaced with a conventional swing gate.

Route sign and removed kissing gate seen in #22104. The sign for Acre Road directs cyclists through a kissing gate seen in #50219, and thus an extra minute needs added to the journey duration time shown on the sign.

Kissing gate and steps with awkward ramp at one side. I approached from the wrong side to use the ramp, and the central railing stopped me changing sides without backtracking. This is the Acre Drive entrance to Maryhill Park, and a conne ... [more]

Kissing gate at entrance to Maryhill Park. This is on the route of the Kelvin Walkway, and is the Summerston scheme's off-road connection to the Kelvin Cycleway. UPDATE: This gate has since been replaced with a conventional swing gate an ... [more]

Sign in Maryhill Park. The right-hand sign directs cyclists to the kissing gate in #50218. To avoid this kissing gate, cyclists need to leave the park at this location (through gateway behind camera) and join local road network.
