This park is on the outskirts of Aberdeen and is heavily wooded. It is popular with sports enthusiasts, walkers, naturalists and picnickers. Around the park are football pitches, a golf course, pitch and putt course and woods for walking. The park itself has rose gardens, azalea & rhododendron borders, heather beds, a children's play area and a pets corner.
