Kelvingrove Park was designed by Sir Joseph Paxton and is a classic example of a Victorian park. Located between the upper class Park Circus, the University of Glasgow and the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the 85-acre park was originally created to cater for the middle classes that migrated west during the Industrial Revolution. The park is set on the banks of the River Kelvin and provides a peaceful place within the city for both locals and visitors. In addition to the renowned Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the park also features the Kelvingrove Bandstand, bowling greens, tennis courts, children's play areas, cafes, an orienteering course, riverside walks and a skateboard park. In 2012, Kelvingrove Park was awarded a Green Flag, the benchmark national standard for quality parks and green spaces.
