I took my grandchildren to this park at the weekend. I had not been there for a long time and was very surprised ad delighted by the high standard. Aberdeen City used to have high standards everywhere at one time but sadly these have declined in most other parks and gardens because of a cutback in staffing levels. Although no... More

We stumbled upon these gardens when hunting for the Wild Dolphins around Aberdeen, and its fair to say we we surprised and impressed by their beauty. Hidden away in a broadly residential part of town, these gardens are an oasis of beauty and quietness. They are nktbhuge in size, but definitely worth visiting if you are in the area.

It's a lovely garden, must be glorious in the spring with all the flowers and plants, but it takes 8min to walk all around it... Pity as it's really nice

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.
