Have visited here many times, but have not been for several years, they gardens are well kept & really beautiful, I think the best time to visit is spring time that's when yu get more colourful displays, definately worth a visit if your in the area, but perhaps a wee bit difficult to find

These gardens are close to my apartment in the west end of Aberdeen and not very well known however its a beautiful peaceful place to visit especially in the summer. A bit like a Japanese garden that I once visited with a small stream running under a pretty bridge and through the gardens full of flowers and lush vegetation that... More

This is such a nice spot to amble through. It is well laid out in its separate sections. There are ample seating facilities dotted around when you want to have a rest. The plants and trees are beautiful and varied from all around the world. If you are lucky enough to work close by it is a peaceful spot to... More

Beautiful and quite park with ducks in the pond and singing birds in the trees. Natural and wild designed and gives impression of being in a little forest. Can be a very calming experience if you go early or late in the day to avoid the children playing there.

Johnston Gardens is a peaceful little haven in the Seafield area of Aberdeen. Not very big but lots of lovely shrubs and trees, a pond with ducks and a waterfall. There is a small children`s play area. Plenty of benches and a lovely little bridge.

Gorgeous, gorgeous gardens which we visit every year for the lovely blooms and to enjoy the birds. However we saw it from a different perspective last May becausebMum was in a wheelchair! It was such a shock to realise that much of the gardens are inaccessible to the elderly or disabled. It took me and my brother Michael to negotiate... More

I didn't know this Garden existed until my friend mentioned it, beautifully kept and make a nice change to the larger parks in Aberdeen, very peaceful and my daughter enjoyed feeding the ducks and the little play park at the back. Well worth a visit!

I love these gardens they are really a lovely little place to visit. The memorial to the helicopter flight disaster of BP Miller is a nice setting for their families to visit too.
