Spire Park

Standing on the site of The Spire Park on Roystonhill are two buildings; the
Rainbow Hall and the grand Spire itself. The Rainbow Hall is a sandstone
building now used as a very busy community venue. The Spire is all that
remains of what once was the Townhead Parish Church. Having been neglected
for many years the local authority decided to have it demolished, but the
local people fought, and succeeded in saving the main feature of the
building, a Spire visible for miles across Glasgow from all directions. The
Park is landscaped in such a way as to attract all sorts of use, from
gruelling bmx rollerblading and skateboarding to the sort of planting that,
when fully mature will allow folk to spill out of the Hall and sit in the
sun looking out from this high point, right to the edges of the city.
