A north-east park will officially open its new children’s play area with a family fun day later this month.

The formal unveiling of the amenities at Aden Country Park in Mintlaw will be marked with a ceremony on Friday October 25 at 10.30am.

The new play park, which is suitable for children of all ages and abilities, includes a double cableway zip slide, supernova, castle, basket and five-way swings and more.

Most of the installed play equipment is DDA accessible such as the fully accessible roundabout.

Neil Shirran, the project co-ordinator, said: “The new play area has been developed as part of the £2.13 million National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) Aden Country Park project which also supports the major restoration and redevelopment of both Aden’s historic buildings and landscape, planned improvements to park interpretation, accessibility and signage and a programme to enhance biodiversity.”

Councillor Norman Smith, chairman of the Buchan Area Committee, said: “The opening of the play area marks the completion of the first strand of the wider Aden project.

“It’s a real boost for the park and I’m sure the play area will prove to be a very popular attraction for visitors and the local community alike.

Entertainment at the opening ceremony will also include family-friendly activities such as face-painting, a magician, music, Ranger activities and trails within the Aberdeenshire Farming Museum.
