What’s happening?The People’s Palace Winter Garden has been closed since 2018 for ‘essential repairs’. The Palace building was partially reopened earlier this year but the garden remains shut to the public.

Now a picture showing the state of disrepair of the garden has been shared on social media by Friends of the People’s Palace Winter Gardens and Glasgow Green.

Social media users have reacted calling it ‘disgraceful’ ‘heartbreaking’’awful and ‘gutting’.

One wrote: “This is destruction by the City Council of the property that belongs to the people of Glasgow, at the very least public consultation should have been carried out. The council leaders must be held to account for this.”
