Easy to spend a day here. Plenty to see in all sections. Very much liked the airplanes that were on display. Some of the older paintings show just how much talent the artist had.

This park is well love and well used by the locals from students to dog walkers to creche managers. The only thing that needs improvement is to clean the River Kelvin to its natural state, sans city pollution.

The perfect way to enjoy the first day of autumn is in this beautiful park with fountains, monuments and lots of flowers, trees and wildlife like squirrels.

Day out with 3 little girls who enjoyed the play area at the park as well as walking around the gardens and looking at the plants...they also enjoyed running about on the grass and playing chases with other children. The sun was also shining!!!!
