Our Allotment Gardens date from 1888, when Sir John Stirling Maxwell donated the ground to the residents of Pollokshaws. This means our allotment gardens have been in existence for over 130 years!
The allotments are located within Pollok Park, Glasgow. There are 125 plots within the gardens (including two novice plots available for a year to get new growers started before graduating to a full plot), and most plots have a shed or greenhouse. The plots are well supplied with stand pipes, so it is just a short walk to fill up your watering can. We also have a club house and toilets on site.
We currently have a waiting list of around 10 years, so to avoid setting unrealistic expectations and to eliminate unnecessary admin work, our waiting list is currently closed to new applicants.
If any plot holders would like to send a comment to the committee or you would like to comment on the website please contact us.
