  • You don’t come here for the plants they are the extras. This is a lovely lively well maintained and well used Central Park. On a sunny day it’s just about perfect. There are glasshouses to explore and some lovely sections like the children’s garden. A good mobile cafe near the front gate. There are event here plays light shows etc. No airs and graces a brilliant place to relax.

  • Beautiful gardens, always immaculate , the staff do a fantastic job maintaining a big area. It covers a big area with lovely walks both in the park & along by the river Kelvin. The country right on your doorstep. The Kibble palace which was refurbished is an incredible piece of engineering with a beautiful selection of plants & flowers. A lovely place to sit, let your mind relax. We are so privileged to have such a major landmark on our doorstep. A must see if a visitor to Glasgow that we should all be proud of.

  • Wonderful. I've been to quite a few botanical gardens. This is not an "ornamental" garden but flows more naturally. When I went in May the Azaleas and Rhododendrons were in full bloom! My weather was perfect (thank you for that special present, Scotland). People were taking advantage of the amazing weather by laying out in the grassy areas. The green houses were informative and not overwhelming. The whole garden was like strolling through a well thought out park.

  • Wonderful place to walk around and enjoy nature. Reasonably good toilet facilities. Good for picnics. There is a food stand available and it does take card payments, the latte was amazing but was a little expensive for the size of cup. There is also a tea room but you have to wait to be seated so not sure you can get to go cups. Great place for a morning or afternoon out.

  • One of Glasgows many beautiful parks. A great place to visit after shopping /eating /drinking in the West End. The park is larger than it looks with plenty to see. The Greenhouses are nice. The Kibble Palace is great for a look round or to let your kids have a mini jungle adventure. The park joins nicely onto the Kelvin walkway so you can discover more of the Green West End....
