25 reviews of Pollok Country Park in English
Pollok Park, as it’s known, is located in the southside of Glasgow and is a lovely location for a stroll, picnic or game of football, weather permitting! Make sure you try the 99p cone from the roving ice cream van. The park has won numerous awards and houses both the Burrell Collection and Pollok House. If you bore of the park itself, Shawlands and Victoria Road are both nearby, with a wealth of restaurants and evening entertainment.
this is a beautiful old house in pollock park southside of glasgow i had the pleasure of working there for a few years in the restraunt i loved it very much great place very intresting arti facts on show
This multi tasking pockets of green space features a National Trust for the mansion, the gallery, highland catle, horses, a mountain bike curcuit, woodland gardens and a visitor centre.
For the most peaceful picnic, sit by the white cart water and watch its cascades and diving kingfishers.
Love this place and find something new every time I go. Am a regular visitor with the wee one getting pushed along in the pram. Parking is really reasonable (although hope the money goes direct the park and Burrell Collection rather than the nasty council) and it is really well kept. Lovely views and great nature.
This is a really relaxing place to visit. Pollock Country Park is located in the south side of Glasgow and is a nice change from the bustle of the city. The park itself has a nice long drive through the trees passing the fields where you will see some lovely highland cattle if your lucky depending on the time of year you go you may also see a calf. They are really cute and you will find cars going slower as they pass.
The house is not free but it is worth a visit if your into museums, county houses etc. You can go into the house to use the cafe, although expensive it is always busy. There is a small shop as well.
The park itself sits on the river so you will enjoy lots of walks here. The park is also home to the Burrell Collection which is in a different part of the park to the house. The Children will enjoy the adventure playground and if the weather is nice you could probably make a day of it like a lot of others who take a picnic and sit on the grass. A lovely park with something for the whole family.
One of my favourite parks, especially in the summer, when the country fair is on. the house itself is beautiful and holds murder mystery dinners, and the grounds are superb. The Burrell collection within the park has some great exhibitions as well.
Pollok Park is a lovely park which has a good mix of open park space and well as things to visit, in particular Pollok House which is an old mansion house and has a very good cafe. There are also stables. There are many easy walks which are well sign posted and provide a good walking area for dogs.
Pollok park is easily accessible by car or the nearby train stations. It is also located right on the cycleway and it can be nice to cycle through the park.
The park also has the Burrell collection which is a must visit attraction for art lovers.
There is a reason this park was voted best in the UK and then best in Europe. It is. It has a great mix of open space and facilities which can cater for a broad range of outdoor pursuits. Horses, archery, big coos, dogwalking, cycling, sitting and looking at beautiful gardens, wandering off the beaten track are just some of the choices available. Did I mention the children’s play area, the Clydesdale horses, the park ranger service, the world famous art collection and a national trust property? Honestly this has to be the best park in the world. And did I tell you about the trees to climb, and the tennis….
Pollok Park has a wide variety of activities to suit almost everyone. It won the 2008 European country park of the year award for just this reason. Originally the estate of the wealthy Maxwell family everything is centered around Pollok Country House which has a variety of museum style exhibits. In the summer there are the frankly stunning gardens. There are two golf courses an off road cycle track, play areas for children or miles and miles of forest walks. All of these are well though out easily accessible. Following a major development plan almost all the major paths have been tarmaced so is easily accessible even for the less able bodied.
Pollok country park was one of the most beautiful parks I visited in Glasgow. It’s a true gem within the city. A great place to picnic or just go for a quiet walk. Also check out glasgow city council website for lots of events all year round.
Glasgow has lots of parks, and Pollok Country park is magnificent. Housing Pollok house and the Burrell collection, this park is very special to me as I got married in the amazing pollok House in 2004.
A trip to Pollok park can take a whole day as there is so much to do beside visiting pollok house and the Burrell collection. Children will love seeing the Highland cattle and the horses , and there is a new adventyure playground as well. There are lots of wonderful little trails to walk along and there are cycle paths as well.
Another great park on the south side of Glasgow housing the Burrell Collection, Pollok House, a childrens play park and lots of highland cattle. There are some good annual events held here including the Highland Cattle Show and the Pollok Family Day…both well worth a visit but you may get a little tired of the same duck show and falconer show that tend to be at each one every year (if you keep going). Some mountain bike tracks and walks are here too…and 'Go Ape’ is controversially meant to be setting up sometime as well.
Glasgow is famous for it’s parks and this has to be the ultimate one, its huge and varied while pretty close to the city centre with loads of parking.
At one end is a large wooded area with paved paths and a very muddy mountain bike track while the other end thee are broad green spaces and the Burrell collection a large and varied collection of art and antiques collected by Lord Burrell
This is a peaceful haven in the middle of a bustling city. Lovely country walks along the river, in the kitchen gardens and in the woodland.
There is an old house in Pollok park which is really interesting and perfect for all the family.
The cafe is nice although we found it a bit expensive and it was very busy.
To be honest we just enjoyed walking about and not doing any organised activity.
Huge park where you could spend a whole day, with Pollok House and the Burrell Collection major pulls. The grounds of Pollok House within the park are gorgeous. The park itself has a great kids play area which can get very busy on hot days. Not enough seats for adults though!
this is a nice place to visit when the weather is good. there are lots of nice walks and enough parking. we have enjoyed many a picnic by the river and love to see the highland cattle. pollock house has a charge but free to national trust card holders. it is worth a visit i have seen a wedding here too the gardens are lovely. the burrell collection is not far from pollock house and you can park outside it. it is a lovely place to come to and the children enjoy patting the horses and having the freedom to run freely.
