I absolutely adore this park in the summer. Its location is spectacular and a lovely place to relax and walk around when the weather is nice.

Beautiful park which holds concerts in the summer at the Bandstand. Has Tennis courts, bowling greens, ponds, fountains, statues, skate park and where many locals take pleasure in walking, running, cycling, skateboarding or just simplly sitting or lying down and enjoying the sun when we get it !! Easy access to Byres Road and PUBS !!

Kelvingrove park, is extensive and is as beautiful as it is extensive. There is always hum and buzz in there be it kids playing, family picnics, musicians playing amid themselves or live entertainment paid for by Glasgow City Council.

Great large green areas, with pubs and restaurants nearby. They also have bbq facilities. You can walk from there to the Botanic gardens with no need of stepping out onto the street, all through green sections.

Having been brought up close to Kelvingrove park (Claremont terrace) I enjoy returning there, I like to watch the ducks in the river Kelvin, it is much cleaner now compared to my childhood, we took a picnic and sat for half an hour after our visit to the Art gallery and museum
