Such a small and compact garden with so much in it to see. A real pleasure for anyone interested in plants, trees and shrubs. Narrow paths in places, some on an incline. Small play park for children, ornate blue chinese style bridge over the water with friendly ducks that looked well fed. Our wee dog loves a walk here.

Beautiful small garden so well hidden and unknown that difficult to find even for local people. But it's worth to visit it because it's garden of unusual beauty. A lot of green hideouts. There is also playground for kids. Place highly recommended.

What wonderful gardens nestled into this area of Aberdeen. Worth the visit for a nice walk, feed the ducks (or just watch), visit a small playground, sit for a while to read a book, and even take some lovely family photos. It helped that we picked a sunny day after Xmas, but imagine beautiful at any time of the year.

These gardens are quite small & hilly, but really are worth a visit, especially in the spring time. You need to be quite fit as they are on a slope

A little hidden haven in the Westend, In the Autumn this gem is a blaze of autumnal glory. On a good day its a great place to spend a few tranquil moments. Its not large but with its ponds, waterfalls and Acers a plenty its well worth the detour to explore.

Beautiful area hidden in a concrete city absolutely lovely. I went with my husband on a sunny day. Very peaceful feels very old worldly with its waterfalls and bridge and pond. It has good access for buggies and wheels chairs and is very easy to walk around

So peaceful and a lovely garden to wander through. Even though it rained it was well worth stopping to see.

These gardens are an oasis of natural delights in the midst of the granite surroundings that dominate Aberdeen. The gardens are well laid out with gently rolling paths that are easy for the visitor to travel on. There is a great variety of horticultural species. The other added touch that is noteworthy are the benches with remembrances of those who... More

These gardens are extremely well-tended and full of beautiful plants set around a pretty little pond. There are some nice paths around the gardens to let you explore and lose yourself in this oasis of tranquillity, and some picturesque bridges over the water. There's also a small memorial to the 16 victims of the 2009 helicopter crash. It's not the... More
