The Glasgow Green renewal plan has been devised to restore Glasgow Green (including the People's Palace and Winter Gardens, Fleshers' Haugh and Richmond Park) to its original glory and create an improved visitor attraction.

Current status:

The restoration and relocation of the famous Doulton Fountain - the world's largest terracotta fountain - was completed in the summer of 2005. The Nelson and Martin Fountain has also been restored under the plan. Other completed works include improvements to grounds and services and the introduction of CCTV cameras.


2001 - 2006 - complete
