Woodside area

The Woodside area has been a well defined community for over 200 years since the construction of the Glasgow branch of the Forth and Clyde canal created a man-made barrier to the north and east. The river Kelvin to the west and the wide thoroughfare of Great Western Road complete the boundaries.

The existence since Victorian times of Woodside Baths, Woodside Library, Woodside Halls and Woodside Church all testify to a long local history.

Nowadays Woodside is home to 7,000 residents and to hundreds of businesses, many based in the new commercial parks beside the canal.

There is also a huge choice of shops, cafes, bars, and restaurants in many of our streets, especially on Great Western Road and Maryhill Road.

We are served by two underground stations at Kelvinbridge and St George’s Cross and many bus routes into Glasgow city centre from the north and west dissect our neighbourhood.

Our community is diverse and friendly. In this website you will find details of many thriving associations and special interest groups which reflect this diversity.
