Children's Glen


Providing a safe family environment
for your children

Opens at 9:00a.m.

   Not a tot lot to park the kids, this area is for children of all ages to learn the concepts of Scottish Games: competition and fun. The area was originally designed and maintained entirely by the families of several of our members (specifically the Dahnkens and the Allans), at the behest of then Chief Jack Scott, on our move to Pleasanton in 1994.

   We are especially grateful to our long-time faithful helpers, the members and partens of Boy Scout Troop 911.

   Thank you all for taking the time to visit the Games website and the Children�s Glen page. As a Chairman, I am looking forward to upholding the standards of the past and making the Children�s Glen a must see destination at the Games, with new and traditional ideas for all to enjoy. See you at the Games.
