Seaton Park

Seaton Park is a much loved treasure on the banks of the Don to the north of the City. The 27 hectares has formal beds, a walled garden, mature deciduous trees, open green spaces and a children's play park. Seaton_park_4

Cathedral Walk is a stunning floral display that leads the eye and the walker to nearby St Machar Cathedral. The beautiful arrangements are freshly planted every year and are very popular with visitors and locals alike.

The walled garden is a hidden gem providing a secluded sheltered spot to show off an array of beautiful flowers and plants.

The meandering River Don provides a natural boundary at the west of the park. A lovely riverside walk is part of the corepaths network and links the park to the historic Brig o' Balgownie and beyond to the North Sea. Seaton_park_5

The popular children's play area has the unusual and popular attraction of an old brake van and railway wagons. These proved to be a hit in 1974 when they were first installed and remain a firm favourite today with all children.

A section of the park has suffered from flooding in recent years and a scoping study is under way to look at the options for tackling the problem including the potential for a wetland area. For more details about the project, please go to the Seaton Park Wetland Project
