Once a royal hunting forest, King’s Park is now the city’s most popular green space. A curiosity within the Park is the grassy mound known as the King’s Knot. The area was laid out around 1630 as a royal garden. The mound itself may be older.
Recent work conducted by Glasgow University unveiled the circular stone table formations found under the existing mound. This is thought to be one possible location for King Arthur’s legendary round table. The site was used for many of the medieval tournaments which took place throughout the history of the city.
