Our review

Tollcross Park is one of the loveliest parks in Glasgow and trumps many other city parks when it comes to dog walking.

Tollcross Park is a reasonable size (37 hectares) with beautiful flowerbeds and well-maintained paths. And while the terrain isn’t as diverse as say Linn or Pollok Park, the luscious, undulating spaces give it a great deal of character.
