Visited Tollcross Park to satisfy curiosity about it. Easy bus ride from the centre. Rose garden seemed well cared for and there were still a few blooms. The Winter Garden was closed and looked like it had been for a while, wind damage apparently. Children's...More

Tollcross Park is the main park for the East End of Glasgow (if you leave out Glasgow Green.) This is where the European Championships swimming is taking place. But it is also the home of Glasgow's main rose collection. Good too for walking, jogging, relaxing.

My daughter enjoyed walking around the children’s farm and seeing the animals. She especially loved the ponies! 😀 a cute little area to walk around and the visitors centre was also well resourced.
