After visiting the museum we stretched our legs around the park. It is beautifully tended, with clear signage. The autumn tree colours were spectacular and the park was being well used by so many people. A credit to the city.

This museum is very good for one that does not charge an entry fee but will accept donations in the boxes at the entrance. There is a change of what is displayed every few months it seems. We particularly love the animal history displays. Would recommend for distracting the children for a couple of hours.

It was autumn so the park was beautiful. We strolled, chatted, watched the passing parade and took time out to feel part of Glasgow

If you're visiting Glasgow on a nice day, this park is a must! I had an excellent time strolling through the peaceful grounds and seeing the various sites along the Heritage Trail. There's also a lovely view of the city from some of the hilltops. There's plenty to experience here for people of all ages and lifestyles. I highly recommend... More

Kelvingrove Park is a mid-sized city park, with a good network of pathways for strolling, jogging or biking. It connects with the Kelvin River Walkway, which in turn connects to the Botanical Gardens, so you can get in a good walk if you're so inclined. A beautiful place to spend a crisp mid-October day.

Surprisingly steep and so you get good views and and also quite secluded places. Situated well for Kelvingrove Museum and Glasgow University.
