On the Southside of the city, this hilly and large expanse of open space is the home to both The Burrell Collection and Pollok House but merits a visit for its own attributes. Rhododendrons, Japanese maples, and azaleas are part of the formal planting - created at the end of the 19th century by Sir John Stirling Maxwell, whose family long-resided in Pollok House - but the park is best known for its glens and pastures, which have Highland cattle grazing.
