A vibrant park with a great atmosphere. Walked around the park after visiting the museum. There were pipe groups practising and it was lovely to hear the traditional music in the heart of Glasgow
The park is well kept and worth a wander around

This is a pretty good park in the West End of Glasgow, next to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. It would be better if it wasn't so busy, though.

I would recommend going at 1pm on weekdays to hear the free organ concert. There is also so much to do that you could spend the whole day there. Excellent FREE visit.

Have visited the Kelvingrove Museum many many times, and finally got around to visiting the park on the other side of the road.

It is a lovely big park straddling the River Kelvin. It was very busy as school holidays and a sunny day, but there was plenty of space for all.

There is a large children's play area, including a skate park that was being well used, and further in toilets and a café.

Liked the memorial fountain commemorating the inauguration of Glasgow's water supply from Loch Katrine and surrounding open green space.

As a bonus a pipe band were being tuned up before joining the Piping Live event in the centre of Glasgow.
