UK Park Series: Kelvingrove Park, Glasgow

A wonderful canal, excellent design – courtesy of Sir Joseph Paxton – and a nearby world famous museum, go to make up the glorious Kelvingrove Park in Glasgow.

Just on the edge of a sprawl of concrete, Kevingrove Park is often described as an Oasis, albeit a slightly colder variant than what is usually connoted by the term. But there are exotic artefacts in its midst, including Salvador Dali’s Christ Saint of John Cross and a comprehensive collection of arms and armoury at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum – the most visited museum in the UK outside of London.

The 85 acres of parkland was created in 1852 on commission of the local council and has everything from free bowling to a skate-park. New residential developments on its fringes have also seen a range of new, sleek, restaurants and bars open up.

Here, the park is depicted by Anna Voika as part of our UK Park Series. Find her on Instagram here.
