FORMER Taggart star Colin McCredie has slammed Glasgow City Council for letting a children's play area fall into disrepair.
The actor also branded a maze in the park an "utter disgrace" and a danger to kids.
Colin, 40, was shocked at the condition of the play area in Victoria Park, Scotstoun, after taking his children Maisie, 7, and Betsy, 4, to play there.
He said: "In the six years I have lived in Jordanhill I have never seen the play park in such a disgusting condition.
"The grass that remains was overgrown and a large portion of the grass is now mud.
"There are collapsed metal fences and breeze blocks, a broken basket swing, a missing hammock swing and uprooted tree stumps."
Another problem that troubles Colin and other concerned local people is the nearby maze.
Sharp wire and nails stick out of the wood, which could catch on clothing and skin, while missing panels and ruts mean the area could be extremely hazardous to children who enter it.
"It's an utter disgrace," said Colin.
Jane McManemy, 40, from Broomhill, brings her children, Conor 14, Laura, 10, and AJ, 7, to the park two to three times a week.
She said: "You need to watch out for the wire. I think people just come in and pull the wood down.
"The kids now just run through the gaps and they end up getting caught on wire or tripping up.
"The play area is always quite rundown."
Jane also has concerns about the amount of water that is always on the ground.
She says it makes it wet and boggy, even when not subject to heavy rain, as Glasgow has had recently.
This has detracted from recent additions made to the park, such as a pirate ship climbing frame and basket swing, which is now broken.
She said: "The council looked like it put so much effort into it when it put in the pirate ship, but it seems to have slipped.
"I know it has been raining, but the drainage is a problem even in a dry summer. It makes it harder for the kids to play."
Victoria Park was named for Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee in 1887 and, as well as a children's play area, it contains a large pond and a memorial to local people who died in the two World Wars.
It has numerous floral beds and displays that help it be rated one of the city's "prettiest parks".
The park also has the famous 'Fossil Grove', fossil remains of an ancient forest about 330 million years old.
With the draws of the fossils and ponds, it is popular destination for parents bringing young children, but the play park's condition has left many critical at the council's lack of attention, especially as the school holidays have just started.
Colin added: "How can any child have any pride or enjoyment in a place like this?"
"What is more depressing is this is the second week of the school holidays."
Colin recently filmed an episode of Woolly And Tig, a CBeebies show, in the park with daughter Betsy.
He said: "It was filmed there because we live near the park and are proud of it.
"But we were away on holiday and came back and this is what met us. It really depressed us."
Sheila Robertson, 63, from Newton Mearns, brings her grandson Rory, from Whiteinch, to the park.
The hospital receptionist says she would not stop bringing 21-month-old Rory to the park regularly, but has to always be alert.
She said: "What can you do? Children come to the park to play. They don't see the hazards, so you need to constantly look out."
"The council has been more than a bit slow. It should have got its act together, knowing it was the school holidays coming up."
A spokesman for Glasgow City Council said: "We are working hard to maintain all of our parks during the continuing bad weather.
"A senior manager is going to Victoria Park to evaluate the condition of the park. We would hope to carry out work needing done to correct any storm damage over the next week.
"Any other work required will also be carried out at the same time."
