Dalmuir Park was opened in 1906 within the grounds of Dalmuir House and built by the people, for the people. It’s location is the former site of the Richard Collins family estate, and the famous Paper Mill Factory.

The park has over 100 years of history and has been an important part of the community since the 17th century and survived the Clydebank Blitz of 1941, which decimated the surrounding area.

Various bird species can be found in the park including, swans, ducks, moorhens and coots on the pond, sparrows, thrush, blackbirds, pigeons, crows, magpies, blue tits, and finches. Squirrels are plentiful. Occasionally you might be lucky to spot some deer if the park is quiet.
