Members of the public have been sharing their thoughts about the upcoming overhaul of Union Terrace Gardens, following the news that work will begin in a matter of months.
Yesterday The Press and Journal revealed that Balfour Beatty has been awarded the contract to carry out the £25.7 million project, with construction to begin this summer.
Designs showcasing the new-look park were first published in 2017, with features including an entrance plaza, public amphitheatre and a “halo” light.
It will also be made more accessible with a new walkway from Union Street, lift from Union Terrace and grand staircase off Rosemount Viaduct.
The work is due for completion in summer 2021.
