“a great glasgow park.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

i used to visit this park often and indeed walked through it to go to high school. lots of characters to talk to and great floral displays. our wedding photos were taken in this park many years ago ! the fossil grove was always good to look at and imagine how things used to look.

“FAntastic park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

This park has something for everyone. Great play area's for all ages of children and at times they have inflatables there for a small payment. Nice flower beds to look at and a lovely pond with swans to walk round or to sit and enjoy. A park for children and adults of all ages to enjoy.

“A public park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

A public park with nice gardens. The fossil grove is frequently locked up; it is interesting when you can get to see it.

“Poor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

this used to be an excellent par, with boats on the pond, Crazy golf etc.....changing times. Guess the council dont have the funds anymore. The Kids park is OK, but can be very muddy.... a real shame
