East Park first opened its doors on 16 September 1874 following the purchase and refurbishment of a cottage in Maryhill. Part of the original cottage, which could accommodate up to 50 children, still stands today although it is unrecognisable with all the developments that have taken place over the years.
The school was opened by William Mitchell in response to the Education Act of 1872 which made it compulsory for children between the ages of 5 and 13 years to attend school. East Park School was founded for all those children that could not access education because of illness, or disability, or family circumstances.
Adapting through the need of the local community, East Park has been serving Maryhill for the part 150 years. This exhibition explores this long history through a series of never-before-seen photographs.
Maryhill Burgh Halls has wheelchair access, accessible toilets and large print materials.
