Kelvingrove Park Reviews
Nice quiet green space in the heart of the city. Well laid out paths, easy access for all. Lovely old bandstand, needs to be used more often! Next to river with ponds full of ducks. Loads for kids of all ages to do. Great ornamental fountain as well.
Had a fantastic family wedding here at the bandstand, lovely location. Kept very nice and clean, not sure if staff helped to run it but after a shower all the seats were dried off for us. Great location and setting for functions, loved the place.
