These gardens are so tranquil, with ponds and ducks, great place to go to chill out, or take the kids to feed the ducks. Not spoiled and very peaceful. Real hidden gem

Beautiful gardens tucked into a quiet corner in the west end of Aberdeen. Well worth visiting! Although it is surrounded by houses, it is a quiet spot to enjoy the myriad of flowers - perfumes and colours. It is easily accessible with a car park close by.

A delightful small park. These gardens are famed for Acers and Rhoddies. A nice place all year but May/June being the absolute best time. A small play area at the back for young children. Ducks and moor hen are usually to be seen and like to be fed. Brides come here in Summer for photos.

Aberdeen is blessed with an assortment of lovely gardens - more than most cities and some one takes great pride in looking after them - we just need loo upgrades

We often visit here for a short stroll either at lunchtime or in the evening. This is a popular park with the staff from the companies nearby. Would definitely recommend a visit here.

It was a beautiful landscaped garden with plenty of nice spots to sit. My son was a bit disappointed because he was expecting more space for ball games, of which there is not too much.
