Visit Hazlehead Park in Aberdeen

Hazlehead Park is located on the west side of the city, in Hazlehead Avenue.  It's a beautifully landscaped park, bordered by rhododendrons which are glorious in late spring and early summer. It's the kind of park where you can take the children for a whole day out without them becoming bored and ideal to visit when on holiday.

There is free car parking.self-catering accommodation AberdeenYou will find extensive lawned areas, a putting green (you can borrow the clubs), crazy golf, a wonderful maze that should keep the children occupied for an hour or so, a large swing park, an ornamental rose garden with the Piper Alpha Memorial, restaurant and toilets, nature walks, lovely flower borders and rockery, heather garden, azalea and rhododendron borders, and a small animal section. The rabbit enclosure houses some of the most adorable bunnies on earth, of all different varieties.  There is a duck pond intended for some exotic ducks, that has also become home to a collection of pigeons and other fowl that have decided that it's a good place to live.  Parrots of every hue live in the indoor aviary but don't appear to be particularly happy with their accommodation. One large parrot seems decidedly lonely and constantly demands human contact.  Smaller budgerigars seem to be happier in their outdoor aviary.  Fish in aquariums are to be found next door.  There are also chickens, goats, a llama and ponies. There is a minimal entry fee to the Pet Corner
