I've been here on several occasions, with and without dogs and I love it every time. It has several directions you can go, with some lovely grassy areas, as well as trees, and a couple of nice play areas for the kids. There's a little cafe at one end of the park where you can buy refreshments, and often there's... More

This park has a lovely walkway alongside the River Kelvin which will take you to the West End or the Glasgow Art Gallery depending what route you take. If you choose the West End route it comes out at the Botanic Gardens which h is well worth viewing.

Great places if you can ignore the students. Avoid end of term time! otherwise brilliant park. Good play area for kids, skateboarding ramps. Not peaceful at weekends though. If the sun is out will be heaving.

If you're a lover of olden times history and artifacts, this is the place. It's so huge and I felt like I was back in Louvre with the massive collection of painting from artists of other countries and their very own in Scotland. Likewise the sculptures, the displayed armours worn by medieval knights, far places I never knew existed, and... More

Kelvingrove is a beautiful large park - lots of paths, a couple of great bridges, and gorgeous views - great for a walk on a nice afternoon

Decided to go to the West End Festival. To be honest never knew the park was there. The Park is lovely. The Bandstand has been restored from what I've seen. Great park with interesting monuments and a great view of Glasgow University. Has a fantastic Fountain in the centre of the park. Nice place for a picnic with the family... More

There are only few days in glasgow which are sunny and we like to spend most of these days at the Kelvingrove park...My kid loves to play here and also she likes to feed the ducks in the pond... During nice summer days there are bouncy castle and food stalls for entertaining people.

This is definitely my favourite park in the west end of the city , I regularly exercise my daughters dog there and it's well kept and nicely laid out . It's usually full of dog walkers and people exercising and cycling so always feels safe with other people around. There are plenty seating areas and shading from the sun by... More

The park is open green space with lovely paths to wander about. There is a fountain and many statues. We stayed in Glasgow for 3 days at the beginning of our trip and 3 days at the end, and we walked in the park every day twice a day. Use the Kelvinbridge Tube station to access by tube.
