Our review

Kelvingrove Park is a stunning city park that’s located just 5 minutes away from Byres Road.

On a clear day Kelvingrove Park is absolutely breathtaking, offering as it does everything from meandering riverside walks, to panoramic views and dreamy spires. This makes it one of the most attractive places to walk a dog in Glasgow.
