First impressions weren't great as the park is flanked by big, ugly tower blocks, but it does have real charm and a sense of history.

A great place to walk, run, sight see and relax. We stayed at a great vrbo apartment right on the Green and our kids and we loved it tremendously. Catch the rowers practicing on early weekend mornings and dont miss the amazing three slides park and $1 bicycle track!

I lived in front of Glasgow green for a year and although the park by itself is quite standard I loved the quantity of events it hosted!

Glasgow Green is the city's oldest common land and is close to the city centre. The Dear Green Place, as Glasgow is known is absolutely epitomised by this great civic space. When the sun is shining, hundreds of people descend on The Green to enjoy the space or walk along the River Clyde. If you fancy something to do, then... More

The finish line for the Great Scottish Run was right through the McLellan Arch. What a beautiful sight to see. The park is huge and so green, right on the River Clyde. It was a perfect day for the run and fun afterwards.
