Kelvingrove Park offers a spectacular view of the River Kelvin in Glasgow and plays home to the famed Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. First created by British gardener Sir Joseph Paxton in the mid-19th century, this picturesque outdoor space is surrounded by the University of Glasgow on one side and Hillhead and Woodlands residential districts on another.
The park appeals to travellers of all ages. A skateboarding park, pathways, gardens, and seasonal events makes the park an ecclectic venue.
