Pollok Country Park

Glasgow | Pollokshaws | Art gallery & stately home | ★★★★

For an urban setting, Glasgow has a surprising amount of green space. Pollok Country Park used to be the largest city park in Europe, and is home to the famous Burrell Collection and the mansion of Pollok House. And the park itself? Well, we're not quite as enthusiastic - the ponds on the north side are probably the most interesting part.
