This restful 34 hectares (85 acre) park is roughly bordered by Sauchiehall Street, Woodlands Road and Kelvin Way. Named after the River Kelvin, which runs through it, the park was laid out in 1852 by Sir Joseph Paxton and contains many monuments to Glaswegian chiefs including Lord Kelvin. The huge fountain is a memorial to a 19th century Lord Provost of Glasgow. Enjoy the attractive trees, greenery and sculptures. Kelvingrove Park is the setting for many events during the West End Festival, and is popular with film-makers. Admission is free.
