Assistance dog facilities
Assistance dog exercise facilities
There are two parks just under a mile from us. Festival park is on the south side of the river: to get there you would cross the millennium bridge (step-free) and make your way past the Science Centre, taking just under 20 minutes. Kelvingrove park is on our side of the river but can only be accessed via a footbridge over the Expressway, which has around 15 wide steps on either side. Kelvingrove Park is bigger and has many must-see features, such as The Kelvingrove Museum.
Other assistance dog facilities
We have two metal bowls we keep aside for assistance dogs.
