Parks & Nature
For a longer stretch, walk on through Maxwell Park and into Pollok Country Park. Lovely wild woodland walks, a pond, stables. Maxwell House is a lovely example of a family estate and grand house and the old kitchen (now the cafe) is worth a visit to see how the house would have operated (and sample good scones!). There's a shop and exhibition.
