  • 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
