Great place to go and relax plenty of benches or you could go for a nice walk and see all the amazing pants and flowers. Also sit on the beautifully grass area. Want too impressed with the cafe a bit over priced, bring a picnic or take a walk down Byers road for a bite to eat.

Decent, but not so good as Edinburgh. The glass house is then spent thing about it. It's free, so it's a pleasant respite from the hustle and bustle.

This is a beautiful, relaxing place, just off the Great Western Road in Glasgow. The Kibble Palace is full of exotic plants. If the sun is shining, it is worth sitting there licking an ice cream. And if you can go to the "Bard in the Botanics" you will get a treat.

Great park to wander through in the nice weather. The gardens and green houses are fantastic and very interesting. We took family who were visiting and they loved it! Our wee girl loves the play park and loves being able to run about. A Glasgow treasure.
