A cute little place, worth a walk round. Quite pretty and well laid out. It killed some time for us, before a flight back down to London, after we stayed in Aberdeen for a family wedding. The gardens are easy walking distance from the Hilton Treetops where we were staying.

I wish there were more areas like this in Aberdeen. Well laid out with little paths circling around a pond with lots of ducks. I love the bright coloured bridge and hut. It's very well looked after unlike many things in Aberdeen which can look tired.

We visit often, and every time things are different in the gardens - always different plants/trees at different stages. Very peaceful place.

These gardens are truly delightful. It is a pleasure and a privilege to be able to stroll through the gardens in every season.

Small but perfectly formed area of public gardens with walkways and several ornamental bridges. Look out for ducks and squirrels which are popular with children. Great for families with young children as its small size makes it easy and quick to navigate.

We visited these gardens on a weekend to Aberdeen. They are well kept, good for photography and well laid out. Little paths meander round the area taking you to other hidden areas

Paths were in good shape and the beds had been replanted and looking good. Plenty of free car parking

We live close by here and it is such a 'gem' of a garden to visit. Not too large for pensioners to walk round. The plants are wonderful and there is a bridge over the 'lake' to walk over.

Small but pleasent park for a nice walk during summer. Come here often for walks as we live very closeby. No food or toilet facilites but quite a nice play-park for kids and one of Aberdeen's more well-kept parks.
