Brilliant time the kids enjoyed the dinosaur exhibition and the animals display. The art gallery unfortunately we didn't have enough time because there was some much. We only gave ourselves a couple of hours. You could spend a whole day at it.

Kelvingrove Park is a place for everyone. Any day will find walkers, dog walkers, skateboarders, bicyclists or picnickers lazing the day away under one of the hundreds of trees. The park is wheelchair accessible with paved paths and there are lots of manicured lawns and benches to sit on. There is an extensive and busy skateboard park, a outdoor concert... More

Favourite Park in Glasgow. Tennis courts, bowling greens, ponds, fountains, statues, skate park, plenty of sun traps in summer. Great for a walk, run, cycle, sit, lie down, drink, eat, play and most other things you could think of.

This park is very well maintained and I felt very safe walking it alone during the day and into the evening. It spans a lot of the west end of the city and connects to a lot of other neighborhoods as well. The flowers, trees, bridges, wildlife and many other sights are so lovely and if you are into photography,... More

It's a lovely park but as soon as the sun shines it is a Mecca for the loud student population to drink openly in the park, smoke weed and generally make a right disgusting mess

On a hot summers day there is nowhere I would rather be than spending some quality time with friends in Kelvingrove Park. With lovely fountains and bridges, beautiful walkways and plenty of green space it is a haven in the summer time. The location also means that your close to trendy bars in Finneston and byres road.

Kelvingrove museum was everything we expected and a joy to visit. There was a good section on Macintosh and the Galsgow boys as well as other art.

Kelvingrove park is one of the main reasons I'm growing to really like Glasgow! Visiting here on a sunny day is lovely- my most recent visit was this month, and it was really good to lounge around in the sun! The water fountain is so pretty, and there is plenty of space for everyone to find somewhere to sit and... More
