Barshaw Park is in Paisley, Scotland. It has 55 acres of recreational parkland and garden areas which are open to the public. In the early years of the 20th century, Paisley Burgh Council was looking for a site for a park which would be suitable for use by the public for recreational purposes.
Extensive grounds at Barshaw, which covered some 55 acres, were bought from the Arthur family in December 1911. The Arthur family was well known in Paisley and owned several firms in Glasgow.
Work was carried out on the park to bring it up to a suitable standard before its official opening on 15 June 1912.
