Situated in Glasgow’s trendy West End area full of quirky and idiosyncratic pubs, cafés and restaurants, visitors can while away a whole day with a jaunt to Kelvingrove Park. Located on the river Kelvin and bordering the famous Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, this gorgeous green space was established in 1852, and had previously been an empty woodland estate before being transformed by eminent gardener Sir Joseph Paxton, a member of parliament at the time. Today a busy public space containing a skate park, a bowling and croquet green and a number of interesting monuments, visitors can expect a lot to do and see during a stroll here. With the park having been the venue for a number of important exhibitions including the 1911 Scottish Exhibition of National History, Art and Industry, the area has played an important role in Glasgow’s cultural history.
