> Phoenix Park Terrace Glasgow, Looking for directions
*John McAdam*

Post #1






I am planning to visit Glasgow in the next month or so to visit the street where my father was born in 1920. My problem is that I have never been to Glasgow before and I know very little about the geography of the city. The name of the street I am looking for is Phoenix Park Terrace. Does this street still exist? Can anyone tell me how to find it?

Regards,
John McAdam

Hi John, what Marg is saying is correct. I used to live just up from Cowcaddens, and knew Phoenix Park Terrace.
How to get there depends on where in Glasgow you are living. If you are going to be near the Subway then this will take you right into Cowcaddens. Garscube Road runs right off Cowcaddens Street, or maybe it is called a Road now.
I have not been up that way in years, so I do not know what changes there may have been.
Goodluck in your search.

Hi John,

I was born in Phoenix Park Terrace. The whole area was demolished years ago as part of the urban renewal of Cowcaddens. One of the few older buildings still standing (at least I think it's still standing) is Dundas Vale primary school. May of the kids from Phoenix Park Terr. got their elementary education there.

Good luck !

Hi john i used to live in edington st just below phoenix park terrace from 1950 till 1957 all directions are correct.

I visit the area regularly on nostalgia trips and can tell you that right at the end of the terrace in corn st. where it met the electricity power station there is still the remains of a brick fire place in a small part of wall remaining upright.

What a souviner a few bricks make !!!!

I was looking for Phoenix Park Terrace when I came across this thread. My father also was born on this street in 1910, his name was Charles Alexander Sloan. It is with great regret that the street has been demolished, but I would be very interested in any information about the area and what things were like living there. I never knew my father as he died when I was very young.. Thanks...

Hi Robert and Carol, I lived at 69 Edington Street from 1956 until 1967. My mum and dad were Cathie and Jim Tierney, and I went to St. Joseph's Primary School. It would be great to hear from anyone from my days in the Cowcaddens.
