Circa 1894. Designed and made by James Allanson & Sons of Glasgow. Octagonal bandstand with slender cast iron columns supporting an octagonal ogee shaped dome. Interesting internal structure for the dome. Dome now covered with modern felt. Nice tall spikey weather vane. Decorative cast iron brackets. Decorative cast iron balustrade between the columns at floor level. Nice example of its genre. Now becoming rare. West Park was opened in 1894 in part of what was Brinkburn Dane. LISTED GRADE 2
