Glasgow Green Play Park Glasgow – Fun for everyone

relaxing
Relaxing

"Glasgow Green Play Park" is a brilliant playground located just behind the People's Palace museum. An awesome place to bring your children to!

A brilliant play park just behind the People's Palace museum in Glasgow Green. There's loads to keep kids amused and it's only a five-minute walk away from the city centre.

The main play park has a fantastic network of chutes and climbing frames and there's an area for toddlers and nursery age children behind it. Nobody seems to bother if bigger kids (adults who haven't grown up) join in the fun - there are no silly signs saying 'only for children under 16' here. The only downside is the difficulty in getting children to leave.

It would be a good idea to bring a drink and snack with you as there aren't many shops nearby.

Forth and Clyde Canal – Safe place for a cycle

"Forth and Clyde Canal" is a safe place to cycle in and around Glasgow, head for the towpath of the Forth and Clyde Canal, I'd say. You can rent out bikes.

The Necropolis – Glasgow's city of the dead

"The Necropolis" in Glasgow, or a cemetery, is perhaps not the most obvious suggestion for a picnic place, but for many in the city it's just another park.
