Walking Group - Week 10: Pollok Park

What a wonderful day for a walk in the park and what a wonderful park to walk in. Pollok Park in the Southside of Glasgow is not only the biggest park in the city but one of the most beautiful – especially on a sunny day. Our walking group were very pleased to get one of these last week for their trip and thoroughly enjoyed the sunshine. The Burrell Collection museum is currently closed for refurbishment but there is still plenty to do and see in the park.

There was wildlife aplenty with ducks, damselflies, newts and bees being spotted and lots of birdsong heard from the trees above. The group also had the great pleasure of seeing the shire horses grazing in the field and then being led along the riverbank.

It wasn’t the first time the group had been to the park but it was their first time to find the carved dinosaur bones in one of the cultivated garden areas.
