Victoria Park

by Hollie.xo (follow)
An enjoyable way to spend a sunny afternoon, free of charge with kids of all ages.

We are so lucky that in Glasgow we have an abundance of beautiful, well-kept parks and green space on our doorstep. One that Joseph and I have recently discovered, is Victoria Park.


Named and created for Queen Victoria's Jubilee in 1866, the park does boast rather a grand feel to it, with its regal swans and beautiful flower displays.

Situated between Scotstoun and Broomhill, the park is a fairly straightforward, 25-minute walk from Partick train station and there are also plenty of bus stops surrounding the park that take you right to the city centre, as well as a lot of free on-street parking.


On a sunny day, the park can be quite busy, but not overly so; the green space still feels peaceful and spacious and takes you away from the buzz of the city. There are beautiful flower displays in amongst the grassy areas making a picnic here all the more scenic and that bit more picturesque – the perfect spot for a lazy lunch.

It is currently cygnet season and so watching these wee babies totter alongside their mothers is another highlight for any child or animal lover – Joseph spent a good while fascinated by them and it really was a nice way to pass some time in the sun.


The park also boasts an impressive park area which caters for all ages; there is a smaller park for wee ones and a much larger park for bigger kids that even includes a trampoline floor. In between the two parks, there is a small maze complete with up-scaled musical instruments, hidden within; just keep an eye out as although this maze isn't huge, little ones can easily get lost from sight.


There is a small cafe on site which sells hot and cold drinks, snacks and ice creams and also toilet facilities. There is sadly no baby changing facilities which meant I had to change Joseph's nappy on a mat on the grass, which is fine in the sunshine, but had it been a rainy day I would have had to cut the visit short to find facilities.

Another little extra they have here are the wooden, carved horses that are dotted around the picnic table area; these were a nice touch that Joseph enjoyed climbing!


A very enjoyable way to spend a sunny afternoon, free of charge with kids of all ages.

Where: Victoria Park Pond, Glasgow G14 9RN
