Fodor's Review

A peaceful retreat, the park was purchased by the city in 1852 and takes its name from the River Kelvin, which flows through it. Among the numerous statues of prominent Glaswegians is one of Lord Kelvin (1824–1907), the Scottish mathematician and physicist who pioneered a great deal of work in electricity. The shady park has a massive fountain commemorating a lord provost of Glasgow from the 1850s, a duck pond, and playground, as well as an excellent eatery.
