Beautiful oasis of a park. It is well kept and well used. Seemed pretty huge as well. I went there on a sunny day and there were lots of people just sat on the grass chatting or reading, the usual mixture of joggers and dog walkers was there as well.

We walked around in great weather and there were loads of activities (spring weekend). I liked the clubs around - they were putting on a free lawn balls exhibition. Either way, the park was lovely and abuzz with activity. It was near the west end, and it had a museum nearby. It seemed a great place to play around with... More

Enjoy a stroll through Kelvingrove park and get a bit of fresh air and nature in the West end of the city! You will be surrounded by Glasgow University and near Kelvingrove Art Gallery.

Love the spitfire hanging from the ceiling! It's a wonderful building - a palace in itself. We spent 2 hours there. I could have used 3 - so I was rushed at the end (where I found some of the best exhibit - for me anyway). Not all things was I interested in. Interesting shops in basement too.

Great wee park not too far from the city centre. Spent an afternoon after uni enjoying the rare Glasgow sun and a kickabout. There were families at the play park, skateboarders and we've even seen someone slacklining in the park.

We went into the park when the weather was nice last weekend, it was lovely and had a relaxing atmosphere, it was very busy with families and folk generally sitting about enjoying the weather. We went in to the Botanical Gardens which was worth a look and is free.
