This week, we are visiting Seaton Park for our blog. Covering a total of 26 acres and based just north of the city, it is a super park to visit! We took a stroll through the same day that we visited St Machar’s Cathedral – it was a wet day but that didn’t stop us taking an umbrella and going to explore! Located just behind the Cathedral on the banks of the River Don, there is lots to see from the walled garden, the wetland area and lots of open green spaces to walk the dog or just admire the view.
The Cathedral Walk is always so beautiful and is rated very highly by both Keep Scotland Beautiful and Britain in Bloom. Walk along the path and up towards the Cathedral and when you reach the top, you get a fantastic view looking down to the garden.
For those that like a walk along the river then this is a great place to do this and see what array of wildlife you can spot. The park is a host to many different animals and if you are lucky, you may even spot an otter or a roe deer.
Seaton Park is certainly a park to visit – there is plenty for everyone whether it is a walk along the River Don, a stroll around the Walled Garden or just a chance to admire the beauty.
