It attracts walkers and cyclists with 11km of tarmacked woodland paths, gardens and trails to enjoy. The White Cart Water runs through the park past the grand Pollok House, ancestral home of the Maxwell Family, now managed by the National Trust for Scotland. Pollok Country Park was voted Europe’s Best Park in 2008 and this year will go for Green Flag status, the national quality award for parks in the UK.

Attractions to Pollok Country Park include the world famous Burrell Collection, the working Clydesdale Horses and Glasgow's much acclaimed, award winning fold of Highland Cattle.

The park is located in the South west of the city just 3 miles from the city centre. It is bounded to the South by the White Cart Water, North by Dumbreck Road and East by Haggs Road and Pollokshaws Road. The main access to the park is via the Pollokshaws Road entrance. Pedestrian access is also available from Dumbreck Road and from the Glasgow to Irvine Cycle Way from Corkerhill.
