Duthie Park Trail and Guide

Toggle location map

Welcome to Aberdeen, our beautiful and historic city by the sea! The Duthie Park Trail explores one of the jewels in the crown of the city with popular year-round attractions for people of all ages.

The 44 acre park is loved by locals and visitors due to its wonderfully restored Victorian features such as the iconic bandstand, fountains, the linked lakes, boating ponds, the Japanese Garden, and the stunning botanical gardens in the middle of the park, with paths all around. There are also two playparks – one for younger children and another for the more adventurous – and an all-weather area for ball games. The Park Café is also very popular with visitors.

The David Welch Winter Gardens is the jewel in the crown of the city’s parks, and houses one of the most-visited public botanical gardens

in Scotland.

The park also links directly onto the Deeside Way, a former railway line which is now a popular walking, cycling and horse riding route from the heart of Aberdeen to the countryside of Aberdeenshire. It also runs alongside the River Dee stretching from a picturesque section near the fishermen’s bothy which is also great for walks.

Have fun roaming around Duthie Park and its attractions and finding out a bit about the city’s history and culture as you go.
