Park Groups

Nature Groups

  • Wild Woodland Learning - W.I.L.D. is a community interest company that has been created out of our love of nature and the desire to share this passion with local communities.
  • Discovering Nature On My Doorstep - Engaging youth with nature in a modern, interesting and effective way
  • Off Grid Community - To allow children the chance to play like children should regardless of their physical ability- outside in all weathers, getting dirty, using their imagination & what nature provides as their toys. We want to create a place where the whole community can benefit, providing a space for the community to access and let their children play, learn and develop within.
  • Glasgow Tree Lovers Society - 2013 marked the 80th anniversary of the founding of this Society. Back in 1932 correspondence in the 'Glasgow Herald', about the cutting down of trees in University Avenue by the city authorities, drew together people who wanted to make Glasgow more beautiful. They collaborated with the Civic Society as their Tree Planting Committee.
