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.

  • A lovely spot for a walk and well looked after nowadays... there has been a lot of changes here over the last 10 years and all for the better and nice to see the local cops cycling through the park, makes you feel nice and safe and they were friendly and said hello as they passed. Cant say I noticed much litter or dog muck which a lot of city centre parks can be blighted with.All in all nice for a breath of fresh in the centre of Glasgow
  • Lovely park with different areas for different activities. Nice to be next to the river too, although this does make it colder in the winter. Gardens are really well kept and lawns nicely mowed. There is also a couple of fenced off areas where you can let your dog off the lead towards the middle of the park. There is parking if you look for it especially over on the east side. Definitely go - great park.
  • A lovely large space that's lovely for a day out. There's places to sit where you can eat your lunch and enjoy the sights and the nature, I've even had squirrels eat peanuts from my hands. There are events on throughout the year, and the people's palace and winter gardens too.
  • Very nice park to walk around in, there is a botanical garden (it wasn't open when i was there). It looked like that in the park a lot of pokemon go was being played, so maybe a tip if you like that too? Next to the park stands a brewery, you can definitely smell that, but we didn't mind, we actually had a laugh about it. Overall I think it is a nice park and I predict that it is even nicer in the summer (I went in February).
  • This park is great :) a nice get away area from the stresses of city life it offers the freedom to move and its also great for dog walking. My only irk is alot of it is just grass, I mean a little patch of flowers or something different would be lovely :)
