The Balgrayhill Road entrance to Springburn Park. In the background can just be made out the railing of the path from Lenzie Place down to Lenzie Terrace, but it has steps, so is of little use for cycling. So anyone cycling from here has to … [more]

Overlapping barriers making it difficult to cycle into the park from the now shared-use footway.

The path from the allotments (see #170043) reaches the playing fields car park via this gate. The kerb could be lowered to make it more accessible.
