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.
Glasgow’s best pre-loved shopping spots for kids. Bargains galore & saving the environment. Win win.
Here are a few of our fave indoor spots to hang out & play & get you through the summer rain. Rainy day fun in Glasgow. Some alternatives to soft play…
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!
The Kelvin Walkway is a beautiful walk, stretching 10 miles along the banks of the River Kelvin from Kelvinhaugh all the way out to Milngavie. It’s a great, easily accessible walk where you really don’t feel like you’re in the middle of a big city.
We have just started coming back to Dawsholm Park in the past weeks as lockdown has eased a bit, and we all absolutely love this park. It has open meadow spaces, massive trees, a bit of river to splash in and lots of little hidden bits to explore. It’s such an underrated park and the kids really feel like they’re on an adventure here. Great fun.
“Build” your own adventure day out on the Glasgow Subway. Great for rainy or sunny days. You can make it as low cost as you like. Choose your stops and make your own adventure day up from this list!
Last week we finally managed to get along to check out the new soft play at Kelvin Hall. The wee man absolutely loved it, and I really appreciated how bright and clean it was!
Outdoor playgroups & forest schools in Glasgow for kids 0 – 12. Climbing trees, playing with sticks and mud, den building, marshmallow toasting, all the rustic fun!
Glasgow has loads of indoor places and activities that are either completely free to visit, or pretty low cost. Here’s a list of some of our favourites we’ve visited in the past 5 years!
I went along to some post-natal training sessions with Lynsey, the Mighty Mama coach. Classes focussed on strengthening the pelvic floor and core. Lots of hard work (in a good way) but fun too. Kids can come along as well so no need to find childcare!
These are our 10 of the best family days our near Glasgow: a list of the places that we love to go and spend the day. Our Top Ten. The places we’ve returned to again and again. Some of them are free; some of them are most definitely not. Some of them are suited to rainy days and some are better for the dry days we’ve had so many of recently. Hopefully if you visit any of them, you’ll love them as much as we do!
You know those places that you walk or drive past almost every day, but you’ve never ventured in because you’re always on your way somewhere? Well Cook on Great Western Rd was one of those places for me. I made it in recently though, and was genuinely surprised by their freezer meals because they were so delicious!
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!
The Glasgow Botanic Gardens are a lovely sanctuary in such a busy corner of the city. The playpark is fun and theres lots of space for the kids to run free. The Botanics are the perfect place to let the kids let off steam without travelling too far or spending any money. As a bonus, I get to see the gigantic cacti too!
DJ, bar, soft play, playdough, face painting, sandpit, Lego, balloons & good grub. Mini Manoeuvres is a truly excellent way to go clubbing. With your kids.
I was so looking forward to Jurassic Kingdom when I bought the tickets. From the advertising, it looked excellent. Dinosaurs that move and make noise and that could seem real to my little humans – what’s not to like? Well. Let me tell you. Before I begin, Jurassic Kingdom is a walk round event in …
We’ve only ever been to Bread Meats Breads as a couple before; on those nights we’re out without children, living it up in the city… But I was having a look at the new Bread Meats Bread on Great Western Road and noticed that they have booths, much more space than the restaurant in town, …
The little lady loves a good playpark. I’m a fan too – outdoors, free, energy burning – perfect activity! So I thought I’d share our favourite playparks in Glasgow (or pretty nearby).
Fitdankbaby is my favourite exercise-with-baby class I’ve done; I love how much the babies are incorporated into your workout. Baby boy loved it too!
