I have known this park most of my life and have visited in all weather and in all seasons, admiring the changing views with the passing seasons. Attractions include: the river, magnificent trees, beautiful flowers both wild and cultivated, innumerable species of birds, deer, highland cattle and the heavy horse stables. There is of course Pollok House which is a... More

This park is a must see green space just outside Glasgow City Centre... it was in fact named number one park in Britain in 2006 and then number one park in Europe in 2008... It is a great place to spend a few hours to relax and get away from city life... The park also contains a large mansion and... More

Pollock park is on our door step and we visit regularly. The kids love the play ground and visiting the horses. They also love the pond fishing for tadpoles and taking selfies with the high land cows. The Forrest is forever changing with the season's and we love listening to the different sounds of the trees and birds as we... More

A must, worth a visit to the main house, and the museum, and if you have time on your hand, visit the Park, absolutely beautiful, and towards the end of the afternoon you can enjoy a lovely sandwich or sweets at the main house basement.

A recent visit to Pollok Country Park on a crisp autumn day proved to be one of the best decisions we made in the time we've been in Glasgow. What an amazing space. It's in the middle of a city, yet you would think you were in open country. The colours of the leaves, the grandeur of Pollok House and... More

Approximately 20 minutes (depending on the time of day) from the City Centre this wonderful green space houses the Burrell Collection, Pollok House and loads of Heilant Coos !! or Highland Cows to the less informed. It also has several trails which are never that far away form the exits, although I did get lost for a little while when... More
