This is a nice park in the city, but before walking through it you have to walk much more (despite redundancy!).

A wonderful Park, on both sides of the River Kelvin in the heart of Glasgow's West end. The Kelvin walkway way runs from the park to and beyond the Botanic Gardens. It's more like being in the countryside than a thriving cultural, artistic and educational...More

This lovely park has very enjoyable walks along the riverside and are always so lush, full of trees and plants... it's generally quiet, though it is frequented by uni students and people walking their dogs.
