Sometimes in the city with all the hustle and bustle you need to get away from it all. You could do a lot worst than a trip to Kelvingrove Park. The park is quite massive and might take a few hours to explore the best of it but it is always well worth it. Open to the general public all... More

Visited Kelvingrove Art Gallery on a very wet dull February afternoon, 26th Feb 2017.. It was all free and there were lots of interesting displays and artwork. There were lots of activities for children. However, the visit came alive with the free guided tour provided by Caroline, a very enthusiastic and interesting guide. She gave much insight and knowledge into... More

This park is really well maintained locality for Children and Adults to have an evening walk or morning jog. This connects to Glasgow University and City Center via Cycle path so one can easily walk thru rather than taking the motor way. This is kind of nice and green during summers and during winters it gets covered with Ice Layer... More

Good park and good walk, great place to take your dog or the children during better days. Ample park and usually for nicer days ice cream van etc. Nice to walk around you can walk around here for quite a while. Also good for cyclists and dog walkers too.

Wonderful day out wandering through the gardens. You can also play tennis and squash for free. The museum wasn't really to my taste, but it's a beautiful building and worth a visit.

We walk through this park regularly and each season is different due to the flowers, trees and animals. Can highly recommend it to visitors in Glasgow.

My son and I took a nice stroll through this park and couldn't believe daffodils were starting to bloom...in February in Glasgow?! This park has wonderful walking paths with good directions. We crossed over the Kelvin river a few times wonderful little bridges. Lots of people walking dogs, jogging, and spending time with their children. This was a good memory... More

Lovely west end park in Glasgow easily accessible by bus and underground from the city centre. Riverside walkways with plenty birds and squirrels and good for dog walkers too. The kelvingrove bandstand has live music too some weekends.
