Victoria Park Gardens Aberdeen

Photographs of Victoria Park in Aberdeen with pictures of their gardens and the Victorian fountain with a history of Victoria Park Aberdeen and the Gardens

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.

My new novel:

The Fence Aberdeen Zombie post apocalyptic military survival Novel Book

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.

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.


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.

Victorian Fountain

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


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.

Aberdeen Lynne Golden Retriever

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."
