One of the most beautiful red sandstone buildings in Glasgow, the various coat of arms depicting all the counties of Scotland on the outside of the buiding the year it was finished being built, is beautifully crafted stone and the detail is wonderful.

I loved going here also as even on a gray, cold day, it is lovely. It requires a fair amount of walking but is wheelchair accessible.

I'm a Glaswegian born in 1959 I have been coming here since 1971 every time I come I discover something new it renews my spirit to walk amongst the beautiful trees and nature. The park has wonderful views in all areas. The council does a good job keeping it as clean as possible the locals many don't use the bins.... More

A beautifully laid out and well maintained park that was being used by walkers, runners, exercisers, dog walkers, etc. Was very beautiful on an autumn day and I was very grateful for the many signposts helping me on my way.
