Glasgow has many fine historic communal gardens that were laid out as part of the townscape some 100 to 150 years ago.
They are often in Conservation Areas and are recognised for their overall contribution to the character of the area.
They cannot be listed as buildings, but they are now designated Sites of Special Landscape Importance and mapped in the City Plan 2 maps.
The City Council's Communal Garden Refurbishment Grant, which is administered by Development and Regeneration Services, was set up in 1995. Although relatively small, it has contributed to the refurbishment of several communal gardens.
