Lovely park

This park is so lovely. You can walk around alone, with your dog or friends. It is worth to go uphill because you'll see spectacular panorama of Glasgow.

Near the university, it's such a pretty place with all the green grounds and trees--lots of private places to sit and enjoy the scenery. The museum is right there, plus the school--lots of people.

I ran into the park while discovering Glasgow the best day of my arrival. It is just wonderful. Green and clean place. Spend sometime there and breathe fresh air.

The park is alongside the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. It's main interest to me was that it had been used as part of the facilities for the Commonwealth Games.

A lovely park to wander around, or relax in, with great views from the top of the hill. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

Took a walk round the whole place for first time. Along the river, round the fountain. Found ice cream van and stopped (obviously). Lots of groups, couples and families enjoying the park. Great place to walk around sit about in.

Simply beautiful.On a sunny day-not many in Glasgow-it is magnificent,in the environs of the University.The open air theatre/bandstand has been refurbished and reminds one of bygone days.Walk around as part of your day in this area- totally unique experience.
