Peaceful, the smells of Autumn as I walked though, made the day. Summer is still glinging on but as the leaves start to fall I know I'll visit here again.

I spend a lot of time walking but mostly running round kelvingrove park. It's always busy.....which is always a good sign. Lots of nice paths and monuments and a great water fountain.

So much to discover in this park I am still learning even though I like locally. Bandstand, great coffee shop, birds, ponds, river, children's playground, historical monuments, beautiful scenery, it has it all. Don't miss this if you are visiting Glasgow

Great big Park in between the City and West End of Glasgow - lots of things to do, well kept, and with an excellent coffee shop in the park, its a great way to spend a day and if you have 4 Leg friends, they will love it too
