There once stood a handsome flagpole in this location of the park, 90 feet high, topped with a copper crown, with pavilion and bandstand at the base in octagonal
shape with canopied roof supported by eight columns, 22 feet in diameter, erected at the highest point of the park. The flag pole featured a bronze plaque bearing
the inscription “Presented by John Ferguson Esquire, Ex Provost, Convener of Parks Committee, June 1887, “.The late ex-Provost Ferguson, who deserves much credit
for the purchase and for the laying-out of the park, unfortunately did not live to see the result of his labours, he sadly died shortly before the park was opened. From
the flagstaff’s former location you would have been able to take in the fine unspoilt long distance views of the surrounding scenery. To the north and west lie the
hills of Kilpatrick, Campsie and Strathblane while from the front are the wooded slopes of Jordanhill. Away to the south west are the Gleniffer Braes and Neilston
In 1930 another bandstand and amphitheatre was built on the hill beside the flagpole with seating for 2,000 people. This was again later replaced by the installation
of a crazy golf course during the late seventies.

The whole site has been left derelict for some years awaiting attention from the authorities.
