The Glasgow Park is a very nice area to spend some outdoor time. The park includes walking and biking trails, a pavilion, a skate park and workout sites. Great area for enjoying nature and getting some exercise, too.

I have only walk around the park, but I know that pavillions can be reserved but I do not know any phone number to contact. Yes it gets busier there in the summer.
