I have recently named my property "Rouken Glen"
This was in memory of my Grandparents who named their dairy farm in Pomona Qld. Aust. "Rouken Glen"
They migrated from Glasgow in the very early 1900's.
I don't know why they named their property "Rouken Glen" but can only assume they had lived close to the park or had many happy memories of it and it was a reminder of thier roots.
Part of property passed to my Uncle and he retained the name until his death about 6 years ago.The property has been subdivided and sold.
To continue the name I have taken it on for my land.
I noticed the Park was owned at one time by Lord Eglington, and there is a connection here as there is a suburb of Bathurst NSW called Eglington. That is about 50K from here.
I live in Oberon NSW which was named after the king of the fairies in Shakespeare's "A Mid Summer Nights Dream"
Across the way is an area known as "Titania" also from the same play and the farm that adjoins mine is the originally named "Titania". Oberon celebrates the 150th anniversary of its proclamation as a village this year although the area was settled in the 1820's and then known as "Bullock Flat"
People tell me that the countryside around here reminds them of the rolling fields that are found in parts of Scotland.
So it seems entirely appropriate that I should remember my Scottish forebears with the name "Rouken Glen"

Wouldn't have added contact details if I'd realised it was all going to be published. Suggest making that clearer on your website

What a lovely afternoon spent in Rouken glen pavilion. Garry and his foraged food cooking demo was great. A really friendly setting, incredibly friendly staff and great tasting food. Hoping these become a regular event.
Many thanks for making Dylan (4 months old welcome). It's great as a new mum to be made so comfortable when out and about.

My dear mother was from Paisley, married a sailor during the war and moved to Braintree in Eassex. When I was young, we would return to Rouken Glen every year to sit in the sunshine, of which I have fond vivid memories. Last year my mother passed away and I returned to Rouken Glen after some fifty years to scatter her ashes among the trees, where I know she is at peace and finally home in he beloved Scotland. Thank you...

Will have fond memories of my visits to Rouken Glen Park during my vacation this past July. Running on the paths and around the duck pond. Watching my nephews and their friends playing soccer (sorry, I'm from the USA). Playing golf on the course. And just how well kept and beautiful the park was. THANK YOU!

my sister and i have not been here since we were youngsters, and today it was our turn to be the parents and take our children for a visit. forgot how beautiful and how much greenery there was to allow the kids to have the freedom of running about to their hearts content. was extremely disappointed to find the boats were not on, and there wasn't even a sign up to explain why. maybe someone could fill me in

I enjoyed the park very much. Ran 3-5 miles through it several times during my vacation stay and watched my nephews and their friends play soccer. Loved the views over the city from the golf course. Hope to return in the future
