Whether your walking your dog, taking the kids out for some fun or just want a stroll surrounded by lovely landscape architecture this is the place. It's not the hugest park in Glasgow but it has enough nooks and crannies and well designed zones that it can be a real adventure for children and adults alike. Even if I am... More

4 hours parking for £1 at this fantastic museum. New exhibits. Always more than enough to see. Visited last year and will always make a point of returning.

This is a fantastic park. Large and green (ok in winter not so green) but well worth the visit. Nice pathways with plenty of room to walk along the banks of the River Kevlin. Upto the Bandstand or over to the Mueseum. Back along to the skate park or down to the play area for the kids. This is a... More

We used it much more when we had our dog, but it is a great place for a walk, and if heading across to Byers Road, I always divert through. The layout is lovely, and with the upgrades done for the Commonwealth Games, it really... More

If there is one legacy from the 2014 Commonwealth Games, I would settle for the renaissance of Kelvingrove Park. I have been coming here regularly for over 30 years and, after many years of, under investment the improvements made for the Commonwealth Games have transformed this park. New paths, railings, signs, bandstand rebuilt, tennis and bowling greens have all made... More

Really liked this park, can imagine its beauty in the spring/summer. Lots to see and do with the university and museums beautiful buildings in the background. There is a pretty open air stage that I will try to attend when I return to Glasgow.
