Beautiful gardens in the west end of Aberdeen. Very relaxing and plenty places to take a seat and take in the gardens and wildlife. Lovely water gardens too.

These are a little hidden gem, lovely laid out with trees and shrubs and a wooden bridge or two. Perfect spot to see the different flowers of the seasons we actually had our wedding photography done here many years ago and we often go back for a trip down memory lane.

Went to visit this park after many many years away. It was stunning. The autumn colours were beautiful. We spoke to two of the gardeners who were very helpful in providing the names of some of the trees and plants. There were little birds and ducks enjoying the pond. Maybe wee bird boxes would be good for the birds to... More

These garden are one of the most beautiful in Aberdeen, hidden away from the centre of town in a lovely part of town, it is one of the most unspoiled areas I've ever seen. It's one of those gardens that take your breath away, but what's really good it is never to busy, regular visitors but not to much. Great... More

These gardens are beautifully kept, with a delightful stream running through the middle, lots of pretty ducks & wildlife to feed! There is a large selection of plants, flowers & trees to enjoy, so much so this public garden could beat most gardens that would require entrance fees! Easy walking for both young and old.

Johnston Gardens are by far the most beautiful gardens in Aberdeen. It's just a small garden, in comparison with Seaton, Duthie or Hazlehead Gardens, but it has a gorgeous variety of plants and flowers and cute little bridges. Would be an excellent location for wedding photos.

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.
