Getting to the Fossil Grove
The Fossil Grove is very easy to get to by bus .There is a bus stop on Victoria Park Drive South for buses 1 (all variants) and X4. These express buses run along the Clydeside Expressway and their first stop after the City Centre is on Victoria Park Drive South at Westland Drive – at the south-west corner of Victoria Park and very convenient for the Fossil Grove. Buses 2 and 3 run along Dumbarton Road from the City Centre via the West End. The nearest stop for the Fossil Grove is near the petrol station on Dumbarton Road (Westland Drive at Dumbarton Road) then it is a short walk along Westland Drive to the corner of Victoria Park.
The nearest railway station is Jordanhill (just under a mile away). From the station follow Crow Road south towards the Clyde Tunnel and turn right into Victoria Park Drive North and enter the park through the main gates.
National Cycle Route 7 runs alongside the Clyde from the City Centre and passes through Whiteinch.
There is no dedicated car park for the Fossil Grove or Victoria Park, however there are various on-road parking options around the park.
