The Park is Glasgow's biggest park in Glasgow. Lovely trees and manicured gardens make it the perfect tourist attraction. The park has retained all of its grandeur from the time it belonged to the wealthy Maxwell family. Today, it is home to the Burrell Collection. The impressive collection of paintings includes Islamic and Chinese art, sculpture and also artifacts from the medieval period. It is certainly an interesting place to see.
You can also spend the day on the lovely grass or take a walk around Pollock park’s picturesque landscape. The Pollock house is another interesting sight to see. There is plenty to do here as the park also has a children’s play-area and many scenic walkways. It is a wonderful place to just unwind and relax on your Glasgow Holiday.

This is the most amazing park in the Southside of Glasgow. There is a breath taking manor house which is free to visit and worth it! There is a beautiful cafe in the old manor kitchen which is great for a quick bite. Really busy in the summer!! There is beautiful gardens around the house too. One of the best things we loved was that they had fluffy coos (the highland cows) so we got to see them up close and take pics. We have taken our dogs here a number of times too. No dogs allowed in the manor house but are allowed in the cafe garden!
Generally a nice park. We go more for the kids play park for a 4 and 1 year old. Probably needs some more play items to beef it up. In summer it is heaving. On a few occasions some troublesome teens high on something have been in the park swinging on swings like they are about to take off playing happy hardcore on their phones at max volume!! Toilets are closer to burrell collection and are temporary yet clean and tidy.
Interesting house to visit, quite a good bit of information and nice exhibits in the rooms. Good cafe and gift shop. The park is vast and great to walk in.
Great café but stops serving hot food at 3pm. You can still have nice afternoon tea though and a browse Inthe lovely gift shop. Grounds are very good and varied garden areas. House is extremely interesting, run by National Trust these days. Worthwhile visit definitely.
Pollock house and gardens is such a beautiful, pleasant and peaceful place. Of course, this is National Trust site so was really well maintained, clean and looked after. We had originally planned to see the gardens, the house, the galleries and a special visit to see the Highland coos in one trip, but ended up deciding to split it up over several visits. This change in plan came about due to the remarkable weather, and quite stunning gardens and woodlands. You almost felt like child again, exploring nooks and crannies, discovering secret dens and door ways. Everything was so well maintained and looked after, we walked around for a good couple of hours. The wee cafe is also fascinating with its old world look and feel, the staff were so pleasant and happy and the food on offer was exactly what you'd hope and want from this sort of place. I had a top notch ploughmans lunch, and my wife had a filling brie and bacon seeded roll. We went to see the cows too... (this was my favourite bit... I swear to god, someone brushes their fringes in the morning). Well the outside was enough to fill our day, especially with a little sun bathing under a tree by the river and cant wait to return to see the galleries and inside Pollock House itself.
