Pollok Country Park is a gorgeous expanse of greenery, woodland and manicured gardens, situated to the south-west of Glasgow city centre. Named Britain’s Best Park in 2007 and the Best Park in Europe a year later, Glasgow’s only country park boasts a plethora of features and things to do throughout its 361 acres. Visitors can enjoy leisurely woodland walks, take to one of the park’s designated cycle routes, visit the wildlife garden, tackle the orienteering course, stroll along the banks of White Cart Water, or visit the world-famous Burrell Collection. The palatial 18th century Pollok House, located in the heart of the park, was home to the Maxwell family for six centuries and now houses an art collection.
