Family activities at Kelvingrove Park.

If you've got an empty day ahead of you, but you don't want to lock the family into a airtight activity or day trip, we suggest popping to Kelvingrove Park for fresh air, to stretch the legs and maybe even enjoy a picnic or cafe lunch.

Kelvingrove Park is a public park located on the River Kelvin in the West End Glasgow, containing Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
