Rosebery Park was a football ground in the Oatlands district of Glasgow, Scotland. It was the home of Shawfield F.C. from 1918 to 1960, before being acquired by Glasgow Corporation as a venue for schools' football matches.
Rosebery Park was named after the former Prime Minister, the 5th Earl of Rosebery. Located on the south-west side of Toryglen Street near Polmadie Road, it was the home of Shawfield Juniors. Pollok also sometimes used the ground in the late 1920s whilst they were without a permanent ground.
Following the demise of Shawfield Juniors, the Glasgow Corporation Education Committee arranged to buy the ground in 1961 in order to provide a venue for the schools' football competitions they organised. After being refurbished at a total cost of £14,000, the ground was reopened for schools' matches in April 1963.
