Glasgow Green


Glasgow Green is a park located in the eastern part of Glasgow on the north bank of the Clyde River. This is the oldest park of the city founded in the middle of the 15th century. In 1450 King Jacob II donated a plot of land to Bishop William Turnbull and residents of the city. In 1806 one year after the death of Admiral Nelson a monument in his honor was erected in the park. It was the first monument to Nelson in Great Britain. The Nelson column in Dublin appeared only two years later and in London three decades later.
