  • Good selection of plants and different areas to walk through. Snapping turtles and cacti were really cool. A bit of a hidden gem. (Also it's free) 
  • Here is a nice day out if weather is not too good outside, a very nice stroll round the indoor garden Then a quiet cup of tea or coffee in the restaurant to round the day off 
  • Very pleasant walk every morning with our choc lab Ella Have been doing this walk for nearly 5yrs and there has been a great improvement since Friends of Duthie Park began and still more to come

  • Does well despite low staffing. I've known it for forty years and it has definitely been better in the past; but still a great asset to the city.
  • Gorgeous! A fabulous place to be with flowers. Take your significant other and get some stroll time together. Or get a few lovely photos together; we don't mind.
  • One of my fav spots in Aberdeen. We bring all our ex-pat guests here and enjoy a stroll ourselves. A must do for a relaxing time in Aberdeen.
  • Free botanical gardens and in the middle of winter probably the only warm place in the park. It has tropical plants including a talking cactus! And other floral displays including a victorian alley. There's also a little waterfall with a pond full of terapins.
  • These are great gardens with a wide variety of different climates. Great for kids too
