Enjoyed a fun, sunny afternoon at the park. The cafe at the bottom of the park is well worth a visit. Food is fresh and homemade and very tasty

Plenty to see and do for all ages. Some great walks and points of interest including monuments, the river and lots of trees, plants and wildlife. There is a couple of play parks for children of all ages and a skate park which i enjoy sitting and watching the skaters. Great for a picnic on a summers day

We walked through here after leaving the art museum and were struck by the creative use of space, beautiful landscaping with use of water and how many people were utilizing the space. Truly a gem in Glasgow.
