Queen's Park was laid out by the world-renowned Joseph Paxton and was dedicated to the memory of Mary Queen of Scots.
The park has a good range of sport and recreational facilities and there is a boating pond as well as a smaller nature pond which attracts mute swans, mallards and tufted ducks.
As well as the park’s manicured lawns, there are great views across Glasgow from the top of the hill. On a clear day, the Campsie Fells and Ben Lomond are clearly visible.
The Nursery and Display House feature a fine collection of sub-tropical plants and many types of flowering and foliage plants. The nursery also houses a Zen garden, ponds, tropical fish, exotic birds and a reptile house.
