“Zen in the Leafy West end.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

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.

“Johnstone gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

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.

“Colour,Scents, and Visual Beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

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 have supported the gardens since the inception of these gardens.
