CLYDESIDE COMMUNITY PARK, Beardmore Way, Dalmuir.
ACCESS : Easy acces by foot, cycle or car. Turn down Beardmore Way at the Beardmore Sculpture of a ship.
This small park sits alongside the Golden Jubilee Memorial Hospital griounds and overlooks the Clyde. In fact it is its close proximity to the Clyde that gives this park its special character. There is a short, but pleasant waterside walk from which you can view the ocassional passing ship or other craft - or planes arriving or leaving the airport not that far away.
The park consists of lawns and trees with seating and a play area.
What is most significant of this place is that it is on the site of the Beardmore Naval Shipbuilding Yard. There is a war memorial to those employees who died on service during the First World War. Also see BEARDMORE NAVAL SHIPBUILDING YARD and WAR MEMORIALS - DALMUIR.
