Union Terrace Gardens is an impressive space located in the heart of the city centre.
The Gardens are used for occasional concerts and leisure activities as well as providing an oasis for relaxation in the city centre. Overlooking the Gardens is an impressive line-up of three granite buildings known locally as education, salvation and damnation or the Central Library, St Mark’s Church and His Majesty’s Theatre. At the Union Street end of the Gardens stand a group of 200-year-old elm trees that were originally planted to prevent the newly widened Union Terrace slipping into the gardens.
A great place for sunbathing, picnics and reading a book.
