Why It Works

The Glasgow Botanic Gardens are reasonably large botanical gardens with large open spaces and tropical plants throughout. People are drawn to its 'sit anywhere' feel, which encourages people to sit on grass and seats alike. There is a café inside, and ice cream is usually on sale at the entrance. A walk along the river Clyde is also within its grounds, as are endless combinations of brightly coloured flowers and plants. The gardens are a popular place for students and older people alike. It is a great place to find people playing Frisbee, reading quietly, socializing with friends and even playing the guitar. All in all, just a great space to be in.
