When walking the tracks and path of the park you can forget the city around it, very serene views - all walks to be completed either in Pollock house (national trust) with a nice restaurant/coffee shop inside the old kitchen with massive ranges and gleaming cooking utensils to match. Or inside Burrell collection an amazing collection of art by a slightly obsessive oil magnate at the turn of the 19th century who spent it all on art all sorts of art ranging from Scottish water colours to Ming china, Japanese furniture, Roman, Egyptian and Mesopotamian pieces, the interior of castles, to Rodin and that is just a completely random very incomplete cross section. All is housed in a very nice building, that also has a coffee shop and restaurant, which has been of variable quality over the years. Well worth a visit.

I really really enjoyed this park. Initially I went to see the Burrell collection but ended up going for a long walk and visiting the house. Pollok house is lovely and it has stables with Clydesdale horses. It was a sunny day when I went, so walking around outside was a pleasure. The river is nice and the highland cows in the fields came over to say hello.
I would happily visit again.

We called in at Pollok House after leaving the Burrell Collection. It was a pity that we did not allow ourselves longer to explore this lovely house, formerly owned by the Maxwell family.

The staff on duty are particularly well informed and are happy to chat and point out the various attractions in this lovely house. The gardens are laid out in classic style so do allow yourselves more time than we did so that you can appreciate them fully.

We also recommend a visit to the Edwardian Kitchen Restaurant, which is situated in the former main kitchen, for a nice pot of tea and a tasty cake. The staff here are friendly & efficient.

Brilliant and well kept, something for all to see. Great for kids to enjoy freedom. A stones throw from most areas via motorway. Pollock house is a great venue (National trust members free). Burrell Collection, Highland Cattle and loads more. Great day out.

Been to the park before to see the Burrell collection, so this time had a look at Pollock House. Whilst the Burrell is free, you pay £5.00 to entere here as its run by The National Trust. A very interesting house with lots of history, well worth a visit.
