Duthie Park

The Winter Gardens at Duthie Park Duthie Park is a park of 44 acres which was donated to the city by Miss Duthie in 1880 and opened to the public in 1883.

The park has many artefacts including a bandstand, fountains, ponds, and statues. Within the park is the Winter Gardens, which were rebuilt in 1970. These house many exotic plants including the largest collection of cacti in Britain. This is a park for all the family, with activities from boating in the ponds to cricket on the lawns.

The park has cricket on the lawns, bands in the park in summer, and the ponds are to be refurbished if the City receives heritage lottery funding.

There are two children's play areas, a cafe with toilets and toilets within the Winter Gardens.

Duthie Park is also home to the David Welch Winter Gardens.

Duthie Park Restoration

Aberdeen City Council has been successful in its bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for the restoration and improvement of Duthie Park. Through their Parks for People programme, the Heritage Lottery Fund provide a range of funding to improve and restore parks throughout the country. They have demonstrated how high quality local environments can make a real difference to people's lives and how important it is for communities to feel pride in their local area.

Duthie Park Alternative Car Parking

Due to current popularity of Duthie Park, we would like to suggest alternative parking if our car park is full.
