Glasgow Green is by far the oldest of the city's parks and is within easy walking distance of the city centre.
Among the park’s highlights is the People’s Palace where you can learn the story of Glasgow and its people at this fascinating social history museum. Next to the People’s Palace are the Winter Gardens with an exotic collection of plants and shrubs.
Outside the Winter Gardens is the Doulton Fountain which was moved to Glasgow Green in 1890 after the 1888 International Exhibition at Kelvingrove and following a £5m refurbishment.
The naval victories of Viscount Horatio Nelson are commemorated by the impressive grade A-listed column erected by public subscription in 1806. This was the first monument in Britain to be erected in his honour.
