Hogarth Park

Does anyone know who the park is named after or how it came by that name?

Small park on Edinburgh Road, passed Alexandra Park. Not really a park. Just a patch of grass.

To be honest, I wouldn't go yourself in there at night. Local youth use underneath the bridge there as a local spot. You never see police going in there. You wouldn't even know the park was there.

Im not sure where the name came from but it used to be a railway embankment.I was down having a good look at it and it has been totally cleaned up. Thats probably because it is to be used as the 2nd extension of a road coming from Parkhead uo through Riddrie.
