About Aberdeen consider Johnston Gardens Aberdeen to be the most peaceful and beautiful of Aberdeen parks. It is the smallest at one hectare, but has lots to command your attention. It is most noted for its beautiful rockeries with alpines and heather, bedding plants, spring bulbs, rhododendrons, shrubbery and trees, hanging baskets, gentle paths and picturesque wooden bridges, waterfalls and large pond. Johnston Garden is a haven for local birds from the calm and relaxing coo coo of wood pigeons to the gently floating black headed gulls that could be seen in the photo below and range of ducks like mallard and muscovy.

Advertise On About Aberdeen

Johnston Gardens Aberdeen opens from 8am until one hour prior to dusk. There is a small play area for younger children but the park is not suitable for ball games; it is truly a place to relax and enjoy the fine Aberdeen weather. There are plenty of bench seats to sit, relax and watch the scenery and birdlife. For these reasons Johnston Gardens Aberdeen is a popular place for wedding photographs, particularly the bridge over the pond.
