Green open spaces bring nature to our towns.

Greenspace includes:

  • green corridors such as paths, disused railway lines, rivers and canals
  • woods, grassed areas, parks, gardens, playing fields, children's play areas, cemeteries and allotments
  • countryside joined to a town
  • derelict, vacant and contaminated land which has the potential to be transformed

You can find out more about work to improve greenspaces in the greater Glasgow area or across Scotland at Glasgow and Clyde Valley green network and Greenspace Scotland. More info about the Greenspace in your area is also at

For more information or advice on starting your own environmental project or forming a Greenspace action group contact the Countryside and Greenspace Service.
