PARKS

Glasgow is a much greener city than many people have been led to believe. The streets everywhere have trees growing beside them, and there are an abundance of parks for you to wander around and relax in.

Glasgow Green - Located very near the city centre, Glasgow green is a huge area. This park is one of the oldest and largest in Glasgow, and is also where you will find the people's palace. Glasgow green also hosts many concerts, and in the year 2000 started to hold an annual festival.

Queen's Park - Located in the Southside of Glasgow, queens park has some beautiful landscaping, and a medium sized, man made, pond which is more often than not filled with geese and ducks. At the highest elevation in the park is the "flagpole" which gives visitors a stunning view of the city.

Kelvingrove Park - Located adjacent to Glasgow University, Kelvingrove park was Glasgow's first public park. It is also a very large park and houses greenhouses, and also a museum. Again there is some incredible landscaping throughout the park.

SHOPPING

St. Enoch Sq. - This fairly large(at least by Scottish standards) glass roofed building has all the usual mall-type shops in it. There are a few exceptions, and some of the more unique gifts can be found if you look around. The mall also housed an Ice skating rink on the second floor beside the food court.

Argyll St. - One of the main shopping streets in Glasgow, this street has everything, from the regular run of the mill shops, to an indoor flea market, to tourist shops. If your in the mood for shopping and don't mind the walk, this is the place to go.

The Barras - Flea market extraordinaire! Though it's only open on weekends, the Barras is definitely worth a look. The huge market sells everything from the junk you could find in your attic to some rare and unusual pieces, and everything in between.

BUSKERS

Buskers are everywhere around Glasgow City Centre. From street artists drawing chalk pictures on the pavement to christian groups singing hymns, you are bound to come across something or somebody that catches your eye.
