Kelvingrove Park

Glasgow weather is notoriously fickle and not uncommonly damp, but the sun does shine and, when it does, this extensive park in the city’s fashionable West End is the place to be. It features 66 acres to wander, picnic, or just people-watch, plus monuments like a fine statue of Victorian man of letters Thomas Carlyle and the Stewart Memorial Fountain, designed in memory of the man who brought the first and lasting supply of fresh drinking water to the city from Loch Katrine in the Trossachs Mountains of the Southern Highlands. Also on-site are four tennis courts, three children’s play areas, a skateboard park, and several picturesque riverside trails.

Kelvingrove Park

No matter which path you walk in the Victorian 85-acre Kelvingrove Park, you’ll find yourself in a lovely setting. The Stewart Memorial Fountain, built in the early 1870s, only comes on a few minutes sporadically throughout the day, but it’s worth the wait. There's a really beautiful walk through the park and down to the River Kelvin, which comes out at The Botanics (Glasgow Botanic Gardens). Also not to be missed is the jaw-dropping art collection at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. Offering free admission, Kelvingrove houses one of Europe’s great art collections.
