About Barshaw Park
In the early years of the 20th century, Paisley Burgh Council was looking for a site for a park which would be suitable for use by the public for recreational purposes. Extensive grounds at Barshaw, which covered some 55 acres, were bought from the Arthur family in December 1911. The Arthur family was well known in Paisley and owned several firms in Glasgow. Work was carried out on the park to bring it up to a suitable standard before its official opening on 15 June 1912.
Today, you can use the following facilities for free:
• model traffic area
• nature corner
• play areas - including equipment for special needs
• walled garden
• crazy golf and putting. You will need to bring your own equipment for this.
