Duthie Park Information about the Duthie Park in Aberdeen and the David Welch Winter Gardens
This is one of our oldest recreational grounds in Aberdeen and dates back to a gift from Lady Elizabeth Duthie of Ruthrieston in 1881. She wished to create a public park in memory of her brother Alexander Duthie and her uncle Walter. Generations of Aberdonians have enjoyed her legacy since.
