This is a wonderful little garden in the suburbs of Aberdeen (on the edge of walking limits from the centre of town). Wildlife abounds but you will often see bridal photographs being taken or people coming to the helicopter memorial. There is no cafe but has toilets and is small enough to keep small kids amused for a 20 minutes.

Landscaped with an interesting variety of trees and shrubs for attractive autumn colour; a pleasant place to sit and eat your sandwiches if you're in the area. There's a car park right next to the garden and toilets in the park itself but these were closed today. It's a tiny park and we walked around it in two minutes. It's right by the Gordon Highlanders Museum so you might like to visit that and have a packed lunch in the garden afterwards.

A lovely wee park just a few minutes from town. Just around the corner from the Gordon Highlanders Museum. It serves as a tranquil little oasis in an urban area. Ideal for a small stroll with family and pets. The main beauty is in the amazing plants/trees and of course the ducks!

A hidden gem that's worth traveling out of the town centre to see. It's a really beautiful park and so well maintained (although the public toilet isn't ans is best avoided). The pictures don't do the garden enough justice

Johnstone Gardens can be found coming down Viewfield Road past the Gordon Highlanders Museum and it is second on right with a good car park here. Postcode is AB15 7XE
Great little park for young children and has a nice Duck and Coot pond. Nice walks around here and good swing park as well for the young.
There is a monument here near the top of the park for the Bond helicopter that crashed on 1st April 2009 returning from BP Miller Platform. All 16 people on board perished.
A beautiful setting to recognise this sad event.

Been here many times and found it always to be a lovely place to get away from the city. There are seats if you want to eat lunch and feed the ducks but beware as the seagulls will snatch your food also.

This is one of Aberdeen's smaller park areas but is still very nice for a walk round. It is located near the much more famous Hazelhead park but they are within walking distance of each other, around 15 mins. A very tranquil haven to do some thinking!

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.

If you go to the Gordon Highlander museum take 20 minutes to go round the corner to the Johnston Gardens, a peaceful little park area teeming with wildlife, small waterfalls and japanese bridges.
