Smart Gym CIC is a gym built for parents. With a creche, soft gym space for kids to play in while you work out.
Robertson Park is a great little park to spend a few hours. The playpark is varied, the skate park is good, there’s open space for running around. Plus there’s a cute wee pond with swans and ducks.
A list of hill walks within driving distance of Glasgow, all suitable for little legs. Some higher ascents, some longer distances, some easier & some a bit more tricky.
A list of wide open spaces where you can explore and take a big deep breath away from the city. Country Parks within an hour of Glasgow.
Santa is everywhere in December & I think seeing him too much can sometimes take a bit of magic away. Especially for slightly older kids. So here some of my fave non-Santa related festive activities if you want to avoid the man in red!
Taste Perthshire is a great stop on the A9 whether you are looking for some food, for a cuppa, or to meet some friendly highland cows.
Valley View at Gouldings is a great day out in the Clyde Valley. There is loads to keep the kids entertained and lots of space for them to run free.
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.
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.
Bellahouston Park is jammed full of art exhibits and sculptures. It’s a brilliant park and well worth a few hours exploration. The playpark at House for an Art Lover is great too. Absolutely one of our favourites in Glasgow.
Cloybank Farm has some wonderfully friendly animals. They’re always waiting for the next bag of food to come along, especially the llamas and goats. It’s a great wee place to see farm animals up close.
Gleniffer Braes is a huge park with swathes of open space to explore. It’s so near the city, but it also feels like you’re miles away. With waterfalls, loads of walks, cattle and play areas it’s great day out!
A lovely guest review of the Burrell Collection by a lovely mummy friend and her toddler who went along for a visit recently. Thanks A! It was a rainy Sunday afternoon, so we decided to go to the Burrell Collection with our 2 year old. I had been previously and thought she might like the …
The National Museum of Rural Life is an excellent day out. It’s one of our favourite places to visit. There are lovely farm animals to see (and probably to give a wee pat to), lots to keep kids entertained in the museum, a little playpark, and a decent cafe as well. The tractor ride is fun for everyone too.
Part of the low cost series, for things to do around Glasgow that don’t cost a bomb.
Since the forecast is pretty chilly as far the eye can see, I thought I’d write about a few fun, indoor places we love. First up is one of our favourites for some sweaty bouncing: Inflatanation. This full warehouse down in Kinning Park is basically one big bouncy castle. There’s a massive ball bit (currently …
I needed some motivation to get us spending time outside, so a few weeks ago I decided I was going to try to visit every park in Glasgow over the next few months. And I made a big list of every park in Glasgow!
Summerlee is big enough to spend a few hours playing and exploring, and has lots of things to do. Best of all the museum is completely free! The tram ride is a very exciting added extra.
My kids don’t mind where we go for a swim as long as they can splash and jump in, but some pools are definitely better than others. So I thought I’d share our favourite “fun swimming” pools that my kids enjoy.
We love a little trip into Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum for a few hours. It’s a huge space for the little ones to play in and a great place to meet up with a bunch of buggies. If you manage to read anything, that’s always a bonus!
