About Hazlehead Park , Aberdeen

Located on the outskirts of the city, Hazleheadpark is a very popular destination for sports lovers, walkers, kids and picnickers. Covering around 180 hectares of land, the park houses a golf course, pitch and putt course, football pitches as well as woods to walk through. Besides, the park also houses beautiful gardens like rose gardens, rhododendron borders, oldest maze of Scotland, heather beds and a separate play area for children.

Highlight of the park are the beautiful collection sculptures, brought from different parts of the world and made by some of the best artists. The collection also includes a memorial that was made in honor of the people who lost their lives in the Piper Alpha disaster.

The other attraction of the park is the Hazlehead pet corner, located within the park. However, this pet corner has separate timings and ticket price for public visit.

Hence, this park is a great place to go for weekend outing.

  • This is a really lovely and huge park. Great for exploring, taking the kids to play on the park, walking dogs, taking photos. They also do lots of fun events, the gin and beer festival was on when I visited. The cafe is really lovely. The staff work very hard. Though it can be a bit of a wait when busy, but it's worth it for the amazing food and cakes.

  • Great space, small animal play area and great play areas for all ages. Newly reopened restaurant. Queue for ice cream was long and service ill organised but ice cream great when you finally get served. All in all good day out for families of all ages.

  • Great location to recharge your batteries... Good place for dog walkers, family leisure time and sports. Quite a number of concerts are taking place in this location. Cozy indoors and outdoors cafeteria. Children can find the pets corner for a small fee. Kids playground is full of various attractions to please the most picky one :)

  • Lovely place brought back some childhood memories visiting. Currently under renovation bit still looking great. There is a cafe but it was not visited but looked rather nice as well.

  • The majority of the park looked run down and dull, and the sign posting was horrendous. The cafe was decent and had what you'd expect, nothing fancy. However, the pet corner was disgusting. The animals don't have adequate roaming spaces or proper enclosures. It had an inside area where other animals were kept, and this is where it was clearly obvious they need better enclosures. There was a HUGE snake, one of those thick, very long ones and it's cage was rather small for it's size and contained a lot of twigs and stuff on the ground. It left minimal moving room for the snake, which was stuck, curled up in a tiny corner for the majority of my time there. As well as a snake, there was baby meerkats that had a small enclosure which didn't even have a burrow, something they have in the wild and at most other zoo type places. Seeing all these animals, even the outside ones, in enclosures that just barely meet their needs is disheartening. Not only that, but it's very much only a seeing thing. You can't really touch any animals or feed them. And whilst i was there, a lot of the animals weren't present and the display was 'not inhabited'. 3 pounds to see barely anything. What a disappointment. I wouldn't go back, not even just for a walk in the park.
