Seaton Park, Aberdeen

Seaton Park, Aberdeen

Seaton Park is a public park that straddles the River Don. Open to the public, Seaton Park is one of the largest parks in the city. It has been in regular use since 1947.

Visitors will enjoy walking and running paths that follow the river as it flows through the edge of the park. They will also see flower beds, walled gardens and a children's play area. Mr. Therm, a 1947 locomotive, is a popular feature of the children's play area.

The park is perhaps best known as the home of Wallace Tower. The tower was relocated to Seaton Park during the 1960s. Another interesting feature of the park is a mound that dates to the Bronze Age.

Seaton Park is open 24 hours. However, the paths are not lit very well at night. The city encourages people to walk on trails during daylight hours in order to avoid accidental injury.
