Walk through the park to visit garden monuments, the Royal Doulton Fountain and the People's Palace. This was once a staging area for Bonnie Prince Charlie's army, one of Prince's only outdoor concerts in the UK and the venue for many fireworks celebrations.

I visited today for the first time and liked the park. We were on our way to the People's Palace (although then realised it doesn't open on a Monday!!) and we had walked through Glasgow Green. Really big, very clean and lovely to walk through on a beautiful day like today. There was a kids playpark too, which looked really... More

There was some lovely focal points to look at and also The People's Palace and the walk through Trongate to get there is an interesting walk in its... More

Literally a huge piece of green. Great to see flowers blossoms in spring. People's Palace Museum is right inside the park, free of charge.

The park is lovely, and my favourite memory will be the pink cherry blossoms that are indicative of spring. Unfortunately, it is still winter and a blustery wind and rain blew us into the grounds. The water pouring down subsided as soon as we entered, making the walk through more pleasant. I would love to return on a warm spring... More

We enjoyed going to the Winter gardens and the People's Palace, even though we didn't have long. Close to Strathclyde University, this was a different part of the city for us to explore, and we were glad we did - very interesting and a breath of fresh air.
