Our review

Located to the north of Glasgow, Springburn Park is one of the largest parks in the area, offering stunning views alongside a pleasant mix of laid-to-lawn gardens and woodland areas.


Areas of rubbish do let Springburn Park down, but with so much to see, the overall impression is a pleasant one.
