Victoria Park Gardens Aberdeen

Victoria Park Gardens Aberdeen was named in honour of Queen Victoria and was opened in 1871. Victoria Park and its gardens remain open to the public and are one of the best maintained gardens and parklands in the North East of Scotland. It is set in five hectares and is more of a relaxing park rather than the nearby Westburn Park which is used for sports and family enjoyment.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.

There are plenty of seats to relax on and take in the scenery and the grass is well maintained and suitable for picnics. At the top of Victoria Park Aberdeen is the gardens which are well designed and planted with seasonal displays. There is disabled access throughout and more benches in this pleasant area. Surrounding hedging and trees give the impression of seclusion and afford privacy as can be seen in the photo below.

Gardens



A short walk away is the conservatory and greenhouses and across from these is a modern toilet block with disabled toilets.

There is no car parking nor cars permitted into Victoria Park.

The central feature of Victoria park Gardens Aberdeen is the Victorian fountain that is pictured below.

Fountain



This fountain is unique because it is made from fourteen types of granite and was presented to the people of Aberdeen by granite polishers and master builders of Aberdeen City.
