Lena Points #23: Old Glasgow Zoo Enclosure

Old Glasgow Zoo

Lena and Student Tours Scotland present the first Lena Points of 2014.

This week, Lena is pointing at an enclosure inside the Old Glasgow Zoo. This was a great wee zoo at Calderpark on the far Eastern Boundary of the City of Glasgow. By it's closure in 2003 it was looking rather sad indeed. Lena and I perhaps took more than advantage of the broken down entrance barricade when we got this shot but I'm glad we did. Last week in January 2014 I noticed that work has commenced to transform this entire area. It could have been an amazing park. I'm sad at what it might become.
