There's a small area surrounding the house where dogs must be on leads, but otherwise the grounds are open to unfettered canine exploration. There is a herd of Highland Cattle in the grounds, although we didn’t see them, and wise dog walkers will avoid upsetting them.
The park itself was once the estate of the powerful Maxwell family, who gifted it and the house, to the City of Glasgow in the 1960s after 700 years or so of ownership. There is an entry charge to look at the house and the Burrell Collection of art masterpieces, but entry to the park is free. This is a great place to walk. There's plenty of places to walk around the estate and the information boards around the park are really helpful.
