Autumn on Lilybank Gardens

Autumn Lilybank Gardens

I recently featured Lilybank Gardens on this blog, but with autumn under way, I figured I just had to post this photo of the green space in all its autumn glory. On a related note, as I’ve mentioned before, Lilybank Gardens is one of the most underused green spaces around campus. Question is, why hasn’t the University utilized the space better, perhaps by adding a few benches, perhaps a few flower beds, even a small rose garden? Or are there possibly plans for construction or such?

  1. Is Lilybank Gardens actually university property? I know the buildings are, but the car park on the other side is for general use, as too is the road as far as I’m aware, so it might be that the uni has no say in what happens to the area of grass.

    • I thought that too at first, but there’s a sign at both ends of the park that reads something along the lines of “Property of the University of Glasgow blah blah blah”. And I have on several occasions seen people from Buildings and Estates mowing the lawn or raking up the leaves.

    Earth Science undergrads use railings, stumps and things around there to practice plane measurements before going on their first residential field classes… I don’t know whether GES have anything to do with how the space is used, though.
