Okay, so summer only lasts about 3 days a year in Glasgow, but I can guarantee that for those three days, Kelvingrove Park will be full to bursting! A lovely green, open space, with a play area for kids, plenty of picnic benches, a skate park, and loads of grass to sprawl on and soak up some rays. Nice wide... More

I often go to kelvin grove park. It was great in the summer when the refurbish bandstand reopened and there is lots of musical entertainment. Right beside the park stands the superior art galleries & museum. A. Must visit. If your children are into skate boarding there is a great park within the park and why not got for a... More

I really love Kelvingrove Park. There are lots of places to explore and discover. It's a great place for walking as well as sitting for lunch or reading a book. It's a piece of green space that offers a sense of peacefulness in among the busyness of the city.

I used to life nearby this Park and loved it as a child. I still love it. We visited it recently on our nostalgia visit to Glasgow and is perhaps even more beautiful than I remember from the 60's. A green lung in a bustling city. It is well cared for, and can boast of many species of trees and... More

Massive park with may paths and waterways. We actually got lost in finding our way . It has good signage but I think it could be improved a wee bit. Great for walking through on a hot sunny day. Great for photographers also. We go there every time we go to Glasgow.

loved the whole experience of what this place has to offer. Free entrycar park payment though even though it was sunday and all should be free parking, however, was worth a visit.

Good for family. Lovely park in central Glasgow in the West End. Great for walkers and bikers. Plenty to do for children. Minutes walk to the big gallery.

Glasgow translates as 'Dear green place' and this is one of it's best known parks to the west of the city and adjacent to the Art Galleries. Covers a huge ground with bandstand, skate park and river walks.
