Walked through here on a warm sunny day. Park was bunged with people...mostly families. Looks like it has lots. To appreciate what you're seeing however, a bit of written explanation nearby would help greatly. Loved the fountain.

This park is stunning. It's a great place to "get lost" and to "escape the city life". It is right next to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum, as well as the University of Glasgow.

On one of the finest days in April, the Park was teeming with families and friends all trying to take advantage of a rare few hours of sunshine. The Park is well maintained and the facilities seem to cater for a wide range of ages...More

Park was fantastically laid out (by the Victorian?) and has been looked after well. Good access so I often find myself walking through, sometimes detouring very slightly, when I am going out in the area.

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
