Most people go to Botanic gardens but this park in nicer and a little less crowded on sunny days. Park is kept in good, clean condition despite the odd lazy dog owner. I go running most evenings so its very safe to walk through.

Lovely walking paths, grassy hills for sunning and enjoying a picnic, playgrounds for the kids, playing fields, an amazing museum, an herbaceous border garden with benches for relaxing, and more - This is a great place to spend a day when weather allows!

A nice open green space close to the city centre and right next to excellent museums. It's a shame it started raining or I would have stayed longer.

It's a 5* park when everybody's getting MWI on a sunny weekend day, but it's a 3* park otherwise. So it's a 4* review fro me troops

We really enjoyed our two visits to Kelvingrove Park. The hop-on hop-off bus has a stop here, making access easy. The River Kelvin runs through the park, and it also has an amphitheatre. It makes a great break from the bustle of the city (not...More
