Love the botanical gardens... Dogs allowed too. On leash. The snack van inside serves good coffee and snacks. The tea Room further in make lovely food too. Walking down to the Kelvin walkway is amazing. It is now open after they were renovating the bridge over the Kelvin. The amazing greenhouses full of amazing plants are worth a look. Nice and warm in there on a cold day. No dogs allowed in there tho!
I have always loved this park, since a young age. The gardens are well kept and there's lots to see. It is fantastic that you can walk to kelvingrove park from here using the Kelvin walkway. There is disabled toilets and the majority of the park is accessible. I recently went to the light show and this was a great way of seeing it in a new 'light'.
Entry is free and it is worth at least an hour up how many hours you are interested to see tropical plants, desert plants and such. At the moment there seems to be an event with monster eyes sitting in the brush here and there and also some tribal inspired masks. Fairly soon there will be a lighting event in the gardens, which we will try to check out, if we can. Temperature is fairly warm throughout and sometimes muggy as well. A very nice place to warm up from a cold weather stroll in Glasgow.
Two enormous greenhouses, which are a haven in any weather, but especially winter. A wonderful assortment of plants, from arid to tropical varieties, with statues and ponds, and a virtual jungle as well. Seating in one greenhouse makes it a lovely place to spend some time reading, eating or contemplating, while the other offers a labyrinth of serious exploration. A treasure trove for kids, or photographers. The grounds are also worth exploring, with a nice lawn that gets lots of use on the rare occasions that the sun makes an appearance. Small playground too, if you can find it...
Beautiful retreat from the hustle and hustle of the city. Arrived from the airport for a layover and was impressed by the pristine lush green lawns and flowers in bloom. Was relieved to drop our bags and just lay on the grass in the sun and noticed many others were doing the same. So many benches line the pathway so there should always be seating. Didn't have time to explore inside the greenhouses. Will have to stop in again next time I'm in Glasgow.
