 Description
"There is not much inspiration in this south western section of the city. True, half of Pollok Park is found here but open green space is thin on the ground as council estates occupy much of the seat's territory. Social deprivation and poor housing are serious problems in areas such as Nitshill, Priesthill, Arden and Corkerhill. Elsewhere in Glasgow substantial renewal has taken, or is taking, place, but Pollok offers little to attract the envy of residents in other parts of the city, let alone tourists.
