Kelvingrove Park

Purchased from private owners in the 1800s to provide Glasgow’s rapidly growing population with greenery and outdoor space, Kelvingrove Park was the first designated public space to be created after Glasgow Green. Sir Joseph Paxton, who also created the Crystal Palace in London, was enlisted to design Kelvingrove Park and it remains a fine example of a Victorian park. It boasts numerous beautiful features, including a granite staircase dating back to 1854, the Stewart Memorial Fountain, the River Kelvin Walkway and the bandstand – built in 1924 and notable for its amphitheatre seating and riverside location. The category B-listed bandstand was restored in 2014 having fallen into disrepair and is once again a popular outdoor entertainment venue.
