THE Easter Bunny will join up with the city's newest and cutest arrivals next week.

Youngsters will have the chance to meet Easter Babies - Spring lambs and chicks - alongside ducks, rabbits, hens and one of the Highland cows from Pollok Park at the Queen's Park Easter Pets event.

Park staff will host the annual community event in the park's glasshouse, which is also home to tropical fish, striking birds and a reptile house.

Families can marvel at the bearded gekkos, tarantulas and snakes or opt for a dray ride with the Clydesdale horses in the park.

Children with energy to burn can also visit the soft play area while parents and grandparents can take a well deserved break in the café.

Alistair Watson, the city council's executive member for land and environmental, said: "Easter Pets at Queen's Park is always a fantastic community based event.

The free event runs from 1pm to 3.30pm on Monday, from 10am until 3.30pm on Tuesday and Wednesday and from 10am until 1pm on Thursday.
