This lovely park has very enjoyable walks along the riverside and are always so lush, full of trees and plants... it's generally quiet, though it is frequented by uni students and people walking their dogs.

Lots of open space. In summers, on the rare sunny day, the park is filled with everyone. In winter, people fly down the snowy slopes. Every day, there are people running, dogs being walked, and people there for some fresh air. Some are afraid to...More

I come here often with my son - the park is perfect and I love the location. Bring a picnic blanket on sunny days as there are only a couple of picnic tables.

Went here for a nice Sunday stroll and the park is beautiful, much larger that it appears to be and the views at the top of the hill are amazing.

Built as part of the Great Exhibition of 1888, Kelvingrove park, including the art galleries and museum is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Scotland. A stunning haven of peace, tranquility and learning in a busy city. Something for everyone.

This, with the stunning architecture around it and the charming people of Glasgow to support and smile at you, this could be a refuge, an oasis for reflection, for refreshing open-air ambling. Someone needs to deal with the dreadful litter. Not good enough for Scotland...More

What's not to like; a huge park, a great place to wander around on a summer's day, within easy access to wonderful attractions, an oasis in the midst of a bustling city.
