The 2009 Urban Audit Perception study found that nine out of ten Glaswegians was very/fairly satisfied with the quality of green spaces inside their city.  This was higher than the levels reported for Lille, Belfast, Dortmund and (especially) Ostrava (in Northern Moravia).


The choice of cities is based on research to compare Glasgow and West Central Scotland to other post-regions of Europe.  Reports from this work are available here.
