Seaton Park Aberdeen is a 27 hectare Council owned park at Don Street in the Bridge of Don area. It is ideal for families looking for exercise or those seeking solitude in their walled gardens. Seaton Park is a popular place for those playing football in the large grassed area. The train and carriages style climbing frames are popular for younger children. It is also frequently used by dog walkers with long walks that take you along paths adjacent to the River Don. Seaton Park Aberdeen has easy access to Old Aberdeen
with an exit and entrance by St Machar's Cathedral.

My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

The walled garden of Seaton Park Aberdeen is noted for its topiary, flowers and rose beds.
A short walk takes you to a wonderfully ornate fountain that reads:
This fountain was erected in 1984 in memory of Malcolm Vivian Hay the last Laird of Seaton born 21st January 1881 died 27th December 1962 and of his second wife Alice Ivy Hay or Wigmore died 21 August 1982 Bless the Lord you fountain sing his praise and exult him forever Daniel 3 v 77
Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.
We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.
The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."

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.
