Hazlehead Park Trail
Hazlehead Park is one of the oldest and most historical properties in Aberdeen as it was originally part of the Freedom Lands which were gifted to the city by King Robert the Bruce.
It became a country estate before being bought back by the city as a public park and now has an excellent range of exciting and family-friendly facilities include playparks, café, maze, Pets’ Corner and year-round events such as Aberdeen Highland Games.
The park is renowned for its formal gardens including two rose gardens – the Queen Mother’s Rose Garden and the North Sea Memorial Rose Garden – and the new Rainbow Garden, a beautiful area of quiet contemplation.
Hazlehead Park encompasses both city and countryside with its formal garden layouts and neighbouring woodland walks, nature trails and bridleways. This park truly has something for everyone and has a significant collection of sculpture by a range of artists and heritage items, many of which have been rescued from around the city.
The surrounding woods form the largest woodlands in Aberdeen and are home to a thriving population of red squirrels along with many woodland birds.
Have fun roaming around and discovering for yourself why Hazlehead Park is a great place for park and woodland walks and family-friendly days out!
