Queens Park boasts plentiful amounts of green space in the busy south side of Glasgow. You won’t find many exotic looking plants here, but you might almost get lost in the Victorian pathways that wind their way through the park. The park’s layout will have you weaving in and out of all the trails and take you past all the landmarks.
Wander into the Glasshouses and you will meet a whole host of reptilian critters as well as pond filled with Koi Carp. There are other facilities such as tennis courts, a bowling green, skate park and a small cafe, but be sure to make trek up to the flagpole near the summit to see fantastic 360 degrees view of Glasgow. Officially the highest point in the city.
Stroll up to Queen’s Park on the 1st and 3rd Saturday from 10am until 2pm every month you will find the Queens Park Farmers Market. Tiny stalls loaded with produce from amazing looking jams and chutneys and mountains of bread, juicy punnets of fruit coupled with fresh vegetables, fresh meat and game, as well as huge rounds delicious cheeses. Not forgetting the all important cakes and pastries. Best enjoyed wandering around each stall slowly, whilst trying out a morsel of cheese or bite of cake here and there.
