Take time for a stroll.

This was a beautiful downtown park with a playground and teahouse. There were lots of families and very well behaved dogs, which made our stroll a joy.

The views are fantastic and it is lovely to walk through on a sunny day. Well worth a visit. We went through on the way to shopping in the West End

Apart from all the usual fantastic trees, flower beds and wildlife, this park also has a lovely wee tearoom, the newly upgraded bandstand area with arena type seating where you can have lunch, picnic and have a few quiet moments to yourself. The River Kelvin flows through the heart of the park and Kelvingrove Museum is at the western end... More

Nice park, I have fond memories of this place as I grew up nearby. (It used to be far better) What can you say "Its a Park" nothing unusual about that, it would be nice if they had the fountain working! the "Bandstand" that was refurbished recently is great but why does it have that horrible temporary wire fencing around...

This is a lovely park. I used to walk through it nearly everyday to get to the university. On nice days, it was great for a stroll. The open areas are packed on sunny days in the summer. Worth a visit if you're already at the Kelvingrove Museum or the University of Glasgow.

I really like a good park. There's nothing better to end the day with than a quiet, relaxed stroll through some green. Thankfully, the city of Glasgow apparently shares my feelings with the presence of Kelvingrove. The park has a lovely duck pond, an area for flowers and a playground to give kids something to do other than annoy me.... More

It is one of the most visited parks. Once you go as well, you can understand why... Grand, beautiful and well-maintained...

Absolutely gorgeous park its quite a big a long walk but its worth it, its very relaxing. Theres loads of space for kids or dogs etc to run about about. This is on a main road so there is loads of buses etc that run past it all the time.
