Linn Park

Linn Park

Linn Park is one of my favourite walks, its got everything! Hills, rivers, beaches, bridges, steps, fields, woods and sometimes deersees. I loves it when we go there. It does how ever have one big problem. You can only go there when it’s been dry for days and days or if it’s been so cold it makes the ground really hard. If you go any other time, then its bath time when you get home. Mini always rests at Sell Drive where we all get out and enter the park.
As soon as I get in it’s offski with the leash and straight into a game of ball. The way we go is down the hill past the corral where the little peoplsees play.
At the bottom of the hill is the river. This is the same river as the river run walk and it’s still the same river that’s in Pollock Park. When we get to the river we follow the path downstream. I don’t get to play ball here because when I was a pup the river stole a ball from me.
After a short while the path widens and I get to play ball again. Its not far to the park gates

Passing through them we follow the road a few steps to the old snuff mill and the bridge.

Mum and dad like this part of the river and really like the old snuff mill. I suppose I could live there, its got a big garden.

On the other side the path takes us up some steps, poppys loves steps! Up and up we go

What goes up must come down and we are back beside the river, looking across we can see the path where we came in.

This part of the walk can be very mucky. This is why we only come here when the ground is hard.

Back up some steps all the way to Holmwood House. The path is high above the river and the hill is steep down to its banks. Mum and dad wont let me go on the other side of the railings. This is the highest part of the walk.

The path starts to drop back down to river level and that means BALL!

Shortly the path opens and you can get right next to the river, Mum and dad clean their boots here.

After the beach you can get really close to a waterfall, I think the is the only park in Glasgow that has one.

We climbed the path to the top of the water fall where you get to see Linn Park Bridge

Its funny how the water is calm at the top of the waterfall

When you cross the bridge there is a huge field for playing ball.

Mum started to follow the path next to the river up the hill. On this side of the river I’m allowed to play ball on the path because the fence stops it from dropping down to the river.

This side of the river the trees are different, they are taller and much straighter. The ground is different too, no fallen leaves.

Out of the woods and back on the main drag the path takes us back to the big field where we came in.

Normally we follow the path back to Mini but today we went back down to the riverbank. Disaster! I dropped my ball and the river stole it!

I waited and waited but it did not want to give it back.

Mum and Dad used stones to push it back close enough to get it back with a big stick. Your not getting my ball today White Cart! Excitement over time to get back to mini and home.
