Johnston Gardens is a small public garden in Aberdeen, Scotland. The garden has won the Britain in Bloom competition many times (like the city itself which won the city in bloom category nine years straight before being banned to give another city a chance).
The gardens are full with flowers and shrubbery which sole purpose is for aesthetics. This is a very popular place for wedding photographs to be taken.

  • The Johnston Gardens are one of my favourite spots in Aberdeen to go for a quiet walk and have some alone time. It's usually quite quiet and, in summer especially, it's an absolutely beautiful place. Whether you're watching the ducks paddle in the pond or strolling through the rhododendron bushes as you cross the bridge, it's really relaxing.
  • Nice little park for a walk with a big pond which has ducks. Ducks appreciate being fed so fun for kids to feed the birds (no bread!). One side of the park is flat but you can cross over to the other side which has steps taking you to a higher elevation.
