Great location right next to Kelvingrove art gallery and museum. Wonderful to walk or cycle through.
Well-maintained and gorgeous fountain!

I took my kids to this park on a beautiful sunny day hoping to spend the entire day enjoying nature, playgrounds, and more. Our first view of the park was breathtaking. We were on top of the hill looking down into the river and across to the Kelvingrove Museum and University. We ventured down to the playground and compared to playgrounds in Germany, it was very sterile and packed like ants. There is a cool skate park nearby, but my kids got bored pretty quick and we ventured on. There are many walking paths through the park, but I never had the feel that I had escaped the city, like one might at a city park in Amsterdam or Berlin. It is worth the view, but plan to spend an hour, maximum 2 here.

Most people go to Botanic gardens but this park in nicer and a little less crowded on sunny days. Park is kept in good, clean condition despite the odd lazy dog owner. I go running most evenings so its very safe to walk through.

Lovely walking paths, grassy hills for sunning and enjoying a picnic, playgrounds for the kids, playing fields, an amazing museum, an herbaceous border garden with benches for relaxing, and more - This is a great place to spend a day when weather allows!

A nice open green space close to the city centre and right next to excellent museums. It's a shame it started raining or I would have stayed longer.
