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.

First visit to the newly renovated Bandstand to see Alison Moyet and The Bluebells. Great setting enhanced by a sunny and balmy evening.
