The Children’s Wood and North Kelvin Meadow make up the last wild space in the west-end of Glasgow.  This space is vitally important to the community, who organise regular events designed to connect children to nature, raise aspirations and bring people together.  Some children who’ve been to the Children’s Wood through local schools have said this is the first time they’ve been outside to play in months, or ever.  The Children’s Wood is situated near some of the most unequal areas in Scotland – it is invaluable for building a better future for young people and families in the area.

A Scottish Pre-school Play Association registered outdoor playgroup runs on a Wednesday morning between 10am and 12. Everyone is welcome – even if you don’t live in the area, and no matter what the weather.   There are regular Forest School Clubs for schools and the community.  Get in touch if you would like to be involved: [email protected]

The Children’s Wood can be accessed at any time of day or night by families/carers/schools and all of the community. It is your land – community land – let’s make use of it.  There have been  birthday parties impromptu barbecues and picnics – there’s no need to book – just come down whenever you want and enjoy this wonderful outdoor space.

Please, leave the land as you found it and take away any litter. Thanks.

It is located in between Clouston Street and Kelbourne Street, North Kelvinside.
