4. Robroyston Park LNR – NS629683
Much of the Park was designated as a LNR in 2006. Since then Glasgow City Council has extended the LNR on two occasions, most recently in May 2016, and the whole Park, some 43.3 hectares, is now a LNR.
It is located close to Junction 2 of the M80 with entrances at Rockfield Road, Quarrywood Road and Robroyston Road (see map).
It is owned and managed by the Council and is open to all. It is a wonderful place to visit and is important for its wildlife because of the range of habitats to be found there – grasslands, wetlands and woodland.
Breeding birds include Moorhen, Grasshopper Warbler and Willow Warbler. Buzzards are regularly seen and bird records for September 2017 include Kingfisher and Meadow Pipit.
The park is also good for frogs, toads, butterflies and the Six-spot Burnet Moth.
