Seaton Park is located in Aberdeen, Scotland and is one of the city's biggest parks. It was bought by the city for use as a public park in 1947 from Major Hay.
The River Don passes along the edge of the park. There is a beautiful flower bed area that is maintained to a high standard with new flowers planted every year, and also a secluded set of walled gardens next to a small (private) housing mews called Seaton Stables.
The park is often used as a cut through from the University of Aberdeen students to get from campus (via The Chanonry, alongside St Machar's Cathedral) to Hillhead Halls of Residence, in spite of warnings from University authorities to be cautious due to the lack of street lighting.
Aberdeen Football Club often train on the grass pitches in the park. Much of the park is in poor condition due to flooding and seepage.

Beautiful well kept park. Stunning autumn colours, well worth the walk along the riverside also. Take a walk up tonthe oldest bridge in Aberdeen, also seen a seal in the river. more »
The council have done a great job of making Cathedral walk look fantastic. Seaton park is a fantastic resource and one which often goes unnoticed as unlike Duthie park there are no major roads looking into it. It would be great to see some more events take place here to highlight the park and get more people using it. Great place for jogging too.
Though I have lived in Aberdeen for many years I did not go to Seaton Park until recently and I was extremely impressed. The play park was lovely and my 3.5 year old really enjoyed it. The park seemed very well maintained and the walk by the river is quite nice.
