Victoria Park & Fossil Grove

Victoria Park is one of the prettiest parks in Glasgow. It has a lovely pond with lots of birds to see, a great playpark and Fossil Grove is quite magical for the little ones.

Jungle Rumble Mini Golf

We had a wee day just me and the boy recently, so we took the train into town and headed to check out Jungle Rumble on Bath St.
