Message for Bob Scott "The Davy Crocket Park" - where was this again?

We had cousins who lived in EK and I have a vague recollection of it but can't place it.

Does anyone remember they frog statues that were at the calderwood square? I liked to go there to play on them when i was a kid. Also, my dad told me there was a flower bed somewhere in the murray dedicated to the glasgow garden festival '88. I remember the day the marathon bar got changed to snickers! I was at the dollan baths that day. The other 2 memories that aren't listed yet, is the robert owen centre and the old st louise primary school before it got burnt down. That was my old primary school.
