The park saw chaotic scenes during the lockdown, as drunken locals were escorted by cops for drinking and violating social distancing rules.

And cops have confirmed two people have already been charged today with drinking in public and removed from the park. 

Officers wrote in an update online: "We are working with Glasgow City Council colleagues today to keep Kelvingrove Park safe for everyone.

"Please remember that no alcohol is allowed in the park. Two people have already been charged with drinking in public and ejected in line with GCC Park rules." 

George Gillespie, executive director for the council, said earlier: “Kelvingrove Park is there for everyone to enjoy, but we have been very concerned about recent reports from the park of violence, anti-social behaviour and a frequent refusal to follow physical distancing rules during the Covid emergency.

“Much of this unacceptable behaviour has been fuelled by alcohol and it has created an atmosphere that is intimidating and unwelcoming to many residents who regularly use the park.

“The issues in the park required a response to protect the amenity of the park for all parts of the community.

“Having officers stationed at open gates to enforce the park management rules will help to ensure that the park is a safe place for all people to visit.

“The simple message is that if you come to the park with alcohol you won’t get in.

“Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy Kelvingrove Park, but alcohol should be left behind.

“Like any other open space in the city, anyone who is found to be drinking alcohol within the park is liable to receive a fine from the police.”
