A lovely park, beautifully laid out with lovely walks. Beautiful at any time of year. Great for a day out with children, or a quiet walk. Suitable areas for all. Simply beautiful.

The best thing about Glasgow is that all the museums are free! We enjoyed the huge collection inside the art gallery! There were a lot of history! It is green everywhere. You might want to plan your time as there are lots of things to see!

Worth having a walk round the park if going to Glasgow university and Hunterian Musuem. A lovely park to walk around and sit and read when the weather is really hot.

Went to see them live, playing on the bandstand in the park. What a night, one of the best live gigs we have been to. The park is stunning, the bandstand has just had a major refurbishment. Alison commented on the location of the bandstand, next to the river.......Superb. Great night, Great Location

Beautiful park behind museum and river. Two pipe bands were practicing there. I watch trout rise to a mayfly hatch and then watch a kingfisher scooping up fishes.

Nice pathways though a very green and pleasant area in Glasgow. Well maintained and worth a visit. Big play area if you have kids.

So glad to see that this place has been refurbished. My last visit had been in 1985 and I have fond memories. Perfect size venue that allows you to get really close to the artists. Visited last night with my husband and 10 year old daughter. We had the pleasure of being in row B with a straight on view... More

This elegant park is leafy with easy paths for walking. It is easy to spend an afternoon here - nice benches and picnic areas, several play areas for the children and a friendly, casual tea room.

A nice park to walk around during the day. However, do not visit at night alone! It is very dark and unlit.
