Rubislaw and Queens Terrace Gardens are two small public gardens in Aberdeen, Scotland. Although they are officially two parks, they are bisected only by one road which runs between the 1 hectare rectangular area it covers, so can be considered as one park for this article.

It is located between the streets of Rubislaw Terrace and Albyn Place, in the west-end of Aberdeen approximately 300 metres from the main street in Aberdeen, Union Street.

There is a fountain in the park made from pink granite and trees which are over a century old. On the Rubislaw Terrace (north) side of the park, there is a gray granite wall of small pillars along the entire side.

The park is commonly used by students of the many nearby schools.
