Union Terrace Gardens

Union Terrace Gardens is an unusually shaped one-hectare park that provides a very important and unusual green space in the heart of the city and dates back to 1879.

Situated just off the city's main thoroughfare of Union Street, the park was built in the valley of the Denburn and the amphitheatre formed over the remains of the flattened Denburn Terrace.

Union Terrace Gardens is used for occasional concerts and leisure activities as well as providing an oasis for relaxation in the city centre. On the north side is a magnificent floral crest depicting the city's coat of arms. Above that are three beds that change each year and depict local and national groups or topical events.

At the Union Street end of the gardens a group of mature elms, approximately 200 years old, are a remnant of a site known as Corbie Woods. 'Corbie' is the traditional Scots word for 'crow', and indeed crows nest there to this day.
