|[Formal Gardens, Victoria Park]|
Glasgow is famous for the quality and quantity of its public parks. Which is the most interesting? Well, that award might go to Victoria Park. Tucked away in one of the less touristy parts of the West End, this 50-acre green space contains immaculate formal gardens, a large boating pond, a surprisingly dramatic rock garden and even a collection of 325-million year-old, fossilised tree stumps. Take a bag of bird feed for the ducks...
