Pretty little gardens

This beautiful public garden with its stream running through the middle is a pleasure to walk round, the gardens are well kept and a credit to the council.

Johnstone Gardens aren't easy to find but are definitely worth a visit. A tranquil, magical and peaceful place all year round with an abundant display of flowers, herbs, trees and waterplants!

I have visited Johnstone Gardens a few times, once when collecting the Wild Dolphins around Aberdeen, and another time finding a geocache. Both times I have been amazing at this stunning little garden hidden in the centre of Aberdeen. The garden looks as if it is out of a movie or from a foreign country. Is it so nice and... More

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

the gardens are a treat of quiet and tranquility in the heart of Aberdeen. Unfortunately the ponds have been overwhelmed with mud and silt from the building of a huge housing estate close by but steps are being taken to ensure that it does not happen again and the last time I was there the ducks had returned as the...

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
