Overview

One of Glasgow’s most loved green spaces, Kelvingrove Park is the perfect place to go for a walk. Or if you’re competing at the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships, to nail a 360° frontflip. 

The peace and quiet of Kelvingrove will be on pause while the world’s best BMX Freestyle Park, BMX Flatland and Trials riders get together to compete for medals, entertain the masses and make history.

First opened in 1852, the park and its Victorian era splendour has seen a lot. But nothing like this.

Make sure you’re here to see it too!

Fun Facts!

The park is named in honour of Lord Kelvin who excelled in the study of physics. Some of the gravity-defying tricks at these events will put his theories to the test!

Beyond the bikes, there’s plenty for everyone: a world-class art gallery & museum, a skatepark, bowling and croquet greens and probably an ice cream van or two!

The Kelvingrove Bandstand, now restored to its original Victorian era glory, has seen Sir Tom Jones, Brian Wilson, Van Morrison, Texas and more walk its iconic boards.

On a clear August morning, you’ll get some of the finest views in Glasgow from the hill looking down across the river towards Glasgow Uni and Kelvingrove Museum.
