Awesome Autumn October 7, 2013

Hello Rouken Glen fans, and welcome to the second instalment of our Ranger blog.

We at Rouken Glen can’t quite believe that it is October already. Oh how flies when you’re super busy ensuring that the Park is in top condition.

Autumn is in full swing, and the park is looking stunning, with the trees turning brilliant reds, yellows and oranges, and losing their leaves quickly. Autumn also sees the fungi community of Rouken Glen really coming to life, with a whole host of different species, of all shapes, sizes and colours.

The photo above shows the impressive Fly Agaric Amanita muscaria, a poisonous toadstool, but very pretty looking and very distinctive. The white spots on the cap are left behind when the cap loses it’s white protective vail.

You may have noticed that the Rouken Glen Pavilion has finally lost it’s scaffolding and barriers. This is because the refurbishment of the building is nearly complete, and the Park Rangers are looking forward to moving back in to their newly refurbished base. The Pavilion will be officially opening to the public in a couple of weeks, and details on opening hours will be made available very shortly.

The toilets at the Pavilion will also be opening this week, however beware….the ladies and gents toilets have been switched. Looking from the front of the building, the ladies are located on the left hand-side and gents are now located on the right hand-side.
