The carriageway at the end of Park Drive has been claimed for a private car park, and obstructed by a lifting barrier. The sign proclaims it to be private land. This hinders cycle access to Kelvingrove Park.

A van parked not in a marked parking bay, but partly blocking access to the dropped kerb and the path through Yorkhill Park.

Several of the entrances to Drumchapel Park have no dropped kerbs available to leave the carriageway, and also have railings hindering access. This is one of the shorter ones. The railing on the corner of Hecla Avenue makes it too difficult ... [more]

No dropped kerb at the end of the path through Yorkhill Park at Centurion Way.

Work on the path through Yorkhill Park appears to be incomplete. While work on the wall appears to have been completed to a high standard, the path is missing its top surface, and the lighting columns have been placed within the width of th ... [more]

Work on the path through Yorkhill Park appears to be incomplete. The surface is quite bumpy.

Work on the path through Yorkhill Park appears to have ceased.

There's a pothole in that muddy puddle, but no warning sign has been provided.

The first of the petty 'Cyclists slow down' signs in Dawsholm Park.

'Cyclists slow down' in Dawsholm Park, with barriers. The barriers have been repositioned slightly further apart, but are still overlapping, and do not conform to any standard for anti-vehicle barriers. Imagine trying to get your shopping h ... [more]

'Beware of cyclists' in Dawsholm Park.

'Cyclists slow down' in Dawsholm Park, with more barriers.

Barriers and signs galore in Dawsholm Park.

'Cyclists slow down' in Dawsholm Park, in case you've not noticed yet another barrier on the path.

'Beware of cyclists' in Dawsholm Park. Beware also of the nursery minibus driver who parks just around the bend forcing path users into the muddy puddle.

The path into the park is closed for works, but the diversion appears to be signed into the worksite! I used another route instead.

An abandoned Nextbike e-bike in Kelvingrove Park. A new roadway has been built connecting the park to the university exit road, in addition to the adjacent new path.

The Balgrayhill Road entrance to Springburn Park. In the background can just be made out the railing of the path from Lenzie Place down to Lenzie Terrace, but it has steps, so is of little use for cycling. So anyone cycling from here has to ... [more]

Bridge over the White Cart at Pollok House.

Overgrown bushes along the path towards Pollok House from the southern side of the Pollok Estate. This was in the process of being cut back a little distance further on.

Overlapping barriers making it difficult to cycle into the park from the now shared-use footway.

Lanes for walking and cycling have been painted in various places in Kelvingrove Park, but are having little impact on where people actually walk or cycle. Not that the lack of compliance seems to cause any problems.

A flood prevention scheme has been implemented at Greenbank Park, and thus the entrances to the park have steps and ramps over the embankments that would contain any flooding. This is on the cycle route between Newlands and the Silverburn S ... [more]

Greenbank Park, approaching the bridge over the Auldhouse Burn.

A flood prevention scheme has been implemented at Greenbank Park, and thus the entrances to the park have steps and ramps over the embankments that would contain any flooding.

The Dumbreck Road/St Andrew's Drive/Titwood Road/Haggs Road junction outside Pollok Country Park. No sign of the proposed pop-up cycle route on St Andrew's Drive yet.

The bridge appears to be in the process of being rebuilt. UPDATE Oct 2021: A new bridge is now in place.

The track from the playing fields car park (see #170045) arrives at Guidmans Road just short of the path northwards on the other side of the road. However, the road is one-way.

From the playing fields car park, this track links to Guidmans Road and almost connects to the path network beyond.

The path from the allotments (see #170043) reaches the playing fields car park via this gate. The kerb could be lowered to make it more accessible.

While it is possible to cycle through from the allotments to the playing fields at Pollok Country Park, the path through the woods is unsurfaced and muddy in places, so won't become one of my regular routes through the park.

Path/road crossing near the Burrell Collection in Pollok Country Park.

A barrier with an asphalted path through the gap leaving the road into Pollok Park. This route leads to some quieter options for routes through the park. The notice is about reporting crimes against wildlife.

A poor surface on the path the Glasgow to Cumbernauld cycle route is signed along in Glenconner Park. With a little bit of work it could even be quite nice, although the person cycling along the footway of Royston Road in the background wou ... [more]

Flooding across the West City Way in Kelvingrove Park. Not as deep as the previous time I went through it.

Keep Left pedestrians on the West City Way in Kelvingrove Park. But puddle ahead.

The new path in Dawsholm Park (on the right) ends where it meets the old path for the second time. A direct asphalted route through the park between Dalsholm Road and Ilay Road has been reestablished.

The new path from Dalsholm Road continues through the park and has at long last provided an alternative route around the section of park that was fenced off years ago. The fence is now lined with trees. The old path can be seen to the right ... [more]

A brand new path with a brand new barrier obstructing it, in Dawsholm Park. The path to the left leads to a flight of steps, and to the right continues around the edge of this part of the park to link with the main path through the woods, b ... [more]

A brand new path with brand new barriers obstructing it, in Dawsholm Park. UPDATE: The barriers have now been supplemented with signs, as in #174137.

A brand new path with brand new barriers obstructing it, in Dawsholm Park. The new path links Dalsholm Road coming up from the river to the higher level part of the park, and bypasses the steps visible in the distance to the left of the pat ... [more]

A brand new path with a brand new barrier obstructing it, in Dawsholm Park. The new path leads into the muddy puddle on Dalsholm Road that still hasn't been sorted. UPDATE: The barriers have now been supplemented with signs, as in #17413 ... [more]

Steps and fly-tipping obstructing progress in Cowlairs Park. The whole park needs a revised network of paths and tidying up.

No Lorries allowed in Cowlairs Park.

A slightly odd arrangement for accessing the cycle lane on Kelvin Way.

Kelvin Way looking south towards Radnor Street. Planters have been used to separate motor traffic going to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery car park from cycle traffic going both ways along Kelvin Way.

Although most of Kelvin Way remains shut to motor traffic, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery car park access has reopened. Planters have been used to ensure drivers take the turn into the car park, while allowing cycle access on the other half of ... [more]

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.
