Lilybank is a district in the east of Glasgow. It was farmland until the 1930s, though small industries such as rope and brickworks had also been established. Neighbouring areas includeBelvidere, Braidfauld, Dalbeth, Dalmarnock Easterhill, Newbank and Springfield. The Lilybank housing scheme was opened in 1933 to house tenants from slum clearance in Calton, Camlachie and Garngad.

Many residents of Lilybank would consider themselves residents of Parkhead or Tollcross, but they have been officially placed within the Braidfauld Ward of Glasgow City Council.
