I loved going here also as even on a gray, cold day, it is lovely. It requires a fair amount of walking but is wheelchair accessible.

We had a very nice and long walk through the park on a Sunday autumn afternoon. Very nice and quiet place to relax or go out for a run, also very safe

I'm a Glaswegian born in 1959 I have been coming here since 1971 every time I come I discover something new it renews my spirit to walk amongst the beautiful trees and nature. The park has wonderful views in all areas. The council does a good job keeping it as clean as possible the locals many don't use the bins.... More

Lovely varied park with nice gardens and great play area. Glasgow has a wealth of lovely parks but this one is so convenient for the city.

A beautifully laid out and well maintained park that was being used by walkers, runners, exercisers, dog walkers, etc. Was very beautiful on an autumn day and I was very grateful for the many signposts helping me on my way.

This is a good park to walk your dog, your child or just yourself. It has a lovely coffee shop. Is next door to glasgow Art Gallery and you can walk along side the river.
