Seen on: Feb 21 2017

This unicorn marks the remains of a terracotta fountain constructed by the Doulton company in 1912. The fountain originally stood at nearby Balgray Recreation Grounds.

The fountain was dismantled when the Recreation Ground closed around 1970. Only the unicorn and its column survived, and both were relocated to Springburn Park.

The unicorn’s horn is made of bronze rather than terracotta.
