Exploring Eastwood Park.
Unfortunately only 4 of our members could make the October Walk and the ladies just decided to take themselves down to Eastwood Park and explore the nearby area. The ladies took the uphill path between the Council Offices and St.Ninian's High School, arriving at the top of Berryhill Drive which led down to Woodfarm Pavilion. Prior to the building of a school there was a vast grassy area stretching down to the burn and playing fields.
Following the path alongside these fields the ladies came out onto Robslee Road and back through a wooded area to Woodfarm Education Centre and on till they got to an entrance to Eastwood Park, by the site of what was the Walled Garden for Eastwood House. For many years this was Eastwood Nursery, belonging to the Parks Department and after it was all transferred to Rouken Glen it was sadly vandalised and became derelict. However it has now been transformed into an area of well-kept allotments which look very productive. Despite a rather drizzly afternoon the ladies were still able to appreciate the varied species of trees providing beautiful Autumn colours.
