Ideal for relaxation, play, or delving into the region's storied past, Glasgow Green serves as an oasis in the center of Scotland's largest city. A stroll through the six-centuries-old park reveals a host of impressive points of interest, including the first civic monument in Britain to commemorate Admiral Nelson's victories and the 19th-century Doulton Fountain built to celebrate Queen Victoria's reign. Little ones can make use of a number of play areas and will enjoy trying to catch a glimpse of the park's resident Clydesdale horses. If you're lucky enough to experience good weather on your vacation, bring a picnic along to enjoy in the sun.

  • Amazing open space. It has sports areas and astroturf football pitches. Which are unobtrusive but occasionally can be a little loud.However its still a lovely place to walk sights to see and next to river. It has a historic background.
  • Pretty park with a free museum and botanical gardens. There was a cool Terra Cotta fountain in front of the people's palace. The botanical gardens we're a nice place to warm up.
  • Really nice space for a walk, couple of children's playgrounds....one for under-12s and a larger, adventure-type playground. Great for dogs.
  • Great area to hang out and chill. Had the pleasure of being there at the same time as a festival and were able to hear the music and see the light show. Met an epic local which added to the experience! 👍 ✌️
  • Good family outing its got the lot plus the enormous park is a bonus you can sit in cafe food/drinks ur choice really good
