Kelvingrove Park is the West End`s biggest park and it is a popular recreation area in this busy part of the city. It`s also part of a fine piece of urban landscaping as it provides an open space around the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and in front of the tall tower of Glasgow University.

The park is named after the River Kelvin which runs through it. The river is an important wildlife corridor in this part of the city and its route is followed by the Kelvin Walkway. A number of bridges over the river are sited within the park.

The following articles give a description of the park, notes on its history and a description of a number of its statues and monuments.
