Aiming to make this their biggest National Park City event ever: to celebrate the community groups, organisations and National Park City supporters who work together to make Glasgow a Greener, Healthier, Wilder place for everyone.

So if you are supporter of the National Park City, you’d like to find out more or you’d just like a nice day out celebrating Glasgow’s green spaces – come along.

There will be live music, nature activities for adults and kids alike, stalls and talks and the chance to see our brilliant National Park City photo gallery

It will be the last event before submitting the application to achieve recognition for Glasgow as a National Park City – so they need to bring everyone together to celebrate the amazing community of organisations and individuals passionate about our city. There will also be a chance to get everyone’s input and ideas as to finalise the application for National Park City Status.
