Right in the heart of West End in Glasgow, this is a gorgeous park to go to! Full of great hills to climb, statues, a huge fountain, lovely bridges over the Kelvin River, views of Glasgow University's steeples and the Kelvingrove Museum, etc. There's a large hill most of the students, families, etc. tend to sunbathe in when it's sunny...

I love walking through this beautiful park whenever I visit Glasgow. There is always something nice to look at. This week it was a wedding being held in the band stand. Well kept grounds and good securityl

I have visited Kelvingrove Park many times and my most recent visit was on those rarest of days, a hot summer's day in Glasgow! As such it was extremely busy, with the skate park, BBQ picnic tables and play area being particularly popular. It is a lovely park and a welcome respite from the hussle and bustle of the city....

Picnics, barbecues, and good friends are welcome to this park. The field (with a light slope) is the best place to make barbecues, with great views to the University of Glasgow. Full of young people (which involves guitars, music and a friendly atmosphere).
