  • Big and calm Park, room to either play with your dogs or football with your mates, but could use some sort of ice cream shop or coffee somewhere in the middle other than the peoples palace.
  • This is a large open park. There are few features of interest but it is often used for events like Bonfire Night and Pride
  • The oldest park in Glasgow has lots to offer with age appropriate activities if you are 1 or 101. Enjoy a quite stroll, learn the history of Glasgow in the People's Palace or let the kids wild on the swings and chutes.
  • A large, peaceful park perfect for getting away from the city without travelling out if it. There are also riverside pathways that are great for walking, running, and cycling.
  • Great big park that usually has some event or other taking place. Really nice bit to unwind when the weather is good.
