Duthie Park

The 44 acre Duthie Park is located in the south of the city along the River Dee. It was donated to the city by Miss Duthie in 1880 and is Scotland’s third most visited gardens. In the 1900s the David Welch Winter Gardens were added to the park and this provides a unique indoor plant haven.

The park is loved by locals and visitors and is enjoyed year round. The ponds and fountains are loved by remote controlled boat enthusiasts and the playparks are always busy with excited children.

During the summer months many festivals and event take place on the large lawns and it is a great place to relax and unwind

The park also links directly onto the Deeside Way, a former railway line which is now a popular walking, cycling and horse riding route from the heart of Aberdeen to the countryside of Aberdeenshire.
