Johnston Gardens
A D. & S. K. "Ideal Series" postcard image, from their Davidson's Colourised Series, showing Johnston Gardens in the Airyhall area of Aberdeen.

This photograph shows the rustic bridge that spans the pond in the centre of the gardens.

The park used to belong to the Johnston House estate but was gifted to the city in 1936. This beautiful landscaped garden boasts streams, ponds, waterfalls, rockeries and the picturesque bridge seen here. There is also a children's play area and toilet facilities.

The park comes alive in the spring and summer as rhododendrons, spring bulbs, heathers and alpines blossom. The ponds are full of irises and aquatic plants with visiting mallard ducks and breeding moor hens.

Within the Gardens sits a memorial which commemorates the 16 men sadly lost in the Super Puma helicopter crash in the North Sea on 1st April 2009. The flight was returning from BP's Miller platform and crashed 11 nautical miles north east of Peterhead.
