1965 Stonefield Public Park

Pictured is the Glasgow Road entrance to the Low Blantyre Public Park, more recently renamed McAnulty Park. This beautiful photo dates from 1964 or 1965 and sent in by Robert Stewart.

Underneath the Cowan Wilson Memorial Arch , the gardens are laid out nicely and well tended. Marigolds in the foreground, roses and geraniums in the mid sections and at the back roses growing over the wooden trellises. What a shame it was that removing this lovely entrance to such public space was allowed to happen. The arch is of course still there today, but gone are flowerbeds and the care taken with them.
