Pollok Country Park

Get In Touch

The park is Glasgow's largest park and the only Country Park within Glasgow. Its extensive woodlands and gardens provide a quiet sanctuary for both visitors and wildlife.

The park is rich in rural history formerly being part of the Old Pollok Estate and ancestral home to the Maxwell Family. The park is also home to the world famous Burrell Collection.

Pollok Country Park has been successful in achieving a Green Flag Award in 2016. This has been retained every year since 2012. The Green Flag Award is the benchmark national standard for quality parks and green spaces.

Please note: The main archway entrance to the Courtyard at Pollok Country Park is currently closed to pedestrian and vehicle access. Those approaching by vehicle should now park in the Riverside car park and make their way to the courtyard from there. Signage will be put in place to identify the alternative pedestrian route into the courtyard itself- we regret that this route is not fully accessible due to uneven surfacing.
