Points of Interest

Some Edwardian features, including a bandstand and formal gardens.


  • The park does attract a lot of families, but there’s plenty of open space away from the play park.

Our review

Located just outside Glasgow, in Barrhead, Cowan Park is a fair-sized, attractive park that offers both open fields and stunning views. It may not be the largest park, but if you live south of Glasgow and you’ve exhausted the larger parks then it’s certainly worth a visit.
