I think it's one of the most beautiful parks I've seen! Green and lush, with those cute squirrels running to and fro. A must!

PROS: duck pond, good walk if sunny. People attempting to skate or bike often fall over at the skate park. Communal hill to lie down on and crush a six pack when the weather is good. CONS: The weather is Glasgow is rarely good

This is a beautiful park to hang out in and go through. There are lots of great features, including a duck pond.

In the summer, I’m sure this place is an amazing and busy location. In the winter it is still, pretty awesome. I can’t say we walked it in its entirety but still on all sides of it, there are some great views to be seen.

Beautifully landscaped and extensive, this is perfect for a short stroll, or a longer walk. It's lovely to wander through before lectures.
