On the outskirts on the city of Aberdeen, Duthie Park is an absolute gem, with boating lakes, pedalos, band stands, playgrounds, oodles of big green space and the delightful Richard Welch Winter Gardens. These free to enter botanical gardens have all sorts of earthly delights from continents all over the world. I met & had a thoroughly enjoyable conversation with... More

I always enjoy entering the Winter Gardens as the warmth and the perfume of the flowers are very welcoming. The colours of the flowers often brighten up a dreich day and it is very pleasant to wander around the different areas.

We loved the gardens. Lovely space and helpful staff members. Enjoy with the family. Many different plants and flowers. There was a fountain, pond etc. Extremely well done. Duthie Park has been around since I was a young toddler. We go each year when we arrive from another country. It is beautiful to see in each season.

This is a must see if you have a few hours to spend. Excellent for a family picnic. Once privately owned it was gifted to the City by the Duthie sisters who never married.

I used to work very nearby and would walk to Duthie park gardens in my lunch hour. It was always a very calm place and I used to love sitting there eating by sandwich or in better weather stroll around the grounds outside. The cafe is what you'd expect. usually quite busy but the food is ok. Nothing amazing but... More
