Barrowfield Park, home of Bridgeton Waverley F.C. The park was built around 1927 and remained in use until around 1939 when it was demolished to make way for the Barrowfield housing estate.

According to the aerial view, it looks as if Barrowfield swings were on that piece of land.

The Brig Bar, 3 Dalmarnock Road, 13 Bridgeton Cross. This pub started off as Hillcoat's in 1875. The owner William Hillcoat owned some of the best established pubs in the city of Glasgow including premises on the Broomielaw, Anderston Quay, Trongate, Stockwell Street, Port Dundas Road and Pollokshaws Road. Over the years the licence fell into the hands of many publicans. The pub got a bad name, as many fights and drug dealing went on within the walls of this old establishment, the Hillcoat family would be turning in their graves as to what happened to their Bridgeton pub. Over the years the pub had many name changes: Teacher's, The Brig, The Cactus, Colorado, The Umbrella and Drayman's Arms which closed down a few years ago, today it is now the offices of 'Clyde gateway'

The Olympia Theatre of Varieties, also known as ABC Cinema and County Bingo Club. Opened as "A Theatre of Varieties" on September 18th 1911. Converted to a cinema in 1936, destroying most of the original structure. It was then used as a bingo hall, then furniture warehouse. It lay abandoned for some time before being opened by Clyde Gateway on 15th November 2012 including a cafe, library, boxing gym and office space. The only remaining section is the façade itself, now listed grade B
