  • The park has plenty of interest for all ages groups. It has different areas to walk or relax within. 
  • A beautifully laid out and well maintained park that was being used by walkers, runners, exercisers, dog walkers, etc. Was very beautiful on an autumn day and I was very grateful for the many signpost...  more »
  • This is a good park to walk your dog, your child or just yourself. It has a lovely coffee shop. Is next door to glasgow Art Gallery and you can walk along side the river.

  • 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.
