Eight places to see spring flowers in Aberdeen
This beautiful carpet of crocuses can be found in the south of the city, just beside the Kincorth area. Thousands of motorists are cheered up by these little beauties on a daily basis!
There are literally tens of thousands of daffodils and narcissi along this stunning stretch along the River Dee. It's a popular walk or cycle at all times of year and is particularly stunning in the Spring and, as you can see, is just about to burst into full bloom.
More mellow yellow fellows! The daffs here stretch for almost a quarter of a mile in between the Mastrick area of the city, and one of the busiest roads on North Anderson Drive. We're sure they must help make people smile!
These daffodils are nestling among the trees in one of our biggest green spaces, at Seaton Park which runs alongside the River Don. The park has 27 acres of beautiful formal beds, a walled garden, a refurbished former train engine and brake vans as a play area, and of course stunning walks among mature trees with banks of daffodils.
These beautiful purple and yellow crocuses have been planted in their thousands at one of Aberdeen's oldest and historic properties – Hazlehead Park. With Royal connections through Mary Queen of Scots and Robert the Bruce, it is the largest park in the city and is also a designated Red Squirrel Conservation area. We can't guarantee you'll spot a red squirrel but we can guarantee you'll be snap-happy with these little beauties!
These gorgeous wee white and purple crocuses are just starting to peek through the ground in Stewart Park which is in the north part of the city, near Hilton. They've been planted on all sides around the large grassed area in the middle and the effect is just gorgeous. Even the photobombing terrier was deliriously happy among them!
These multi-coloured crocuses are planted in Duthie Park, which is just a short stroll along from the River Dee above – it's a flower festival in that part of the city! The park also has the covered David Welch Winter Gardens which are fantastic to visit all times of the year, and there's also great walks and playparks so fun for everyone!
Now Victoria Park really does live up to the phrase 'carpeted with flowers'! Situated in the Rosemount area of the city, this gorgeous wee park just shows why Aberdeen has won national Bloom, Chelsea Flower Show and Best Park awards 43 times and has won more Scotland in Bloom titles than anywhere else – a testament to the volunteers and park staff who carry out so much work. We love coming to Victoria Park in spring - it's blooming great!
