  • Very pleasant park, latest visit was in the autumn with stunning colours. Plenty of trees and grass. Some great views of surrounding historic buildings, with many of the surrounding streets worth exploring. A very pretty area of Glasgow. There is a large play area for kids and a skate park.
  • Love this massive park for the walk and the playbacks for the kids and all things that go on in it throughout the year.
  • Very nice place for a walk and a good play park ⛲
  • Beautiful park in the heart of Glasgow''s west end. Lots to see and do. Don't miss events at the bandstand
  • Really nice park, but I mostly spend time here at the skatepark. It's a decent skatepark, and the crowd is pretty friendly.
