Always a star attraction , a must see destination. Great array of plants, statues, pools and of course McPuddock the frog which I think the adults love more than the kids. Very child friendly. Good cafe and ice cream parlour . Great place to visit if the rest of the park is too cold or wet. Very easy to spend several hours here. Also great for finding a quiet corner to read or draw. Highly recommend a visit for all ages young to senior.
Delightful botanical garden. Good location. A relaxing stroll through an impressive array of plants only hindered by the sound of whinging children. A well priced cafe offering snacks meals and drinks was welcome too. Close to the Great Dee Way am excellent railway walk.
If its raining; and this is Scotland, mate! This is a great indoor location. Gorgeous! A fabulous place to be with flowers. Take your significant other and get some hand holding, stroll time. Or get a few lovely photos together; we don't mind.
Lived in Aberdeen for 13 years. Had no idea this place existed. Technically free. Relies on donations. Way bigger than I was expecting. So visited the coffee shop and put a few quid in the honesty box on the way out. My youngest daughter loved it.
Every time amazing! The flowers are full of colors. The place give me good mood every time I visited.
