Seaton Park was purchased by Aberdeen Council in 1947 from Major Hay.
Walking further on takes you to the banks of the River Don and as you can see from this photo is worth the walk. There are further walks along the bank.
At the edge of the playing fields overlooked by Old Aberdeen is an old war pillbox built into the hill. The entrance has been buried by land slippage and sadly the loopholes have been blocked.
