Aden Country Park welcomes back visitors as travel restrictions ease

A popular north-east visitor attraction looks forward to welcoming back visitors now coronavirus restrictions are being lifted.

Throughout lockdown, Aden Country Park in Mintlaw has remained open for those living within a five mile radius for walks and picnics, with social distancing.

Now the Scottish Government have lifted travel restrictions, visitors from further afield are welcome to visit the park once more.

The play area for children – which has been closed since March to prevent the possible transmission of Covid-19 – also re-opened last month, as did hundreds of other parks across Aberdeenshire.

Central Buchan councillor Norman Smith said: “I’m really pleased to see the park is now open again to visitors outwith a five mile radius.”

The park is free to visit and booking is not required, but toilet facilities do remain closed.

Last month, the Cafe at Aden reopened for takeaway service only, from Wednesday to Sunday.

Only three people will be permitted in the cafe at a time.

Events including the VE Day celebrations, Seedy Sunday and Wild About Aden have been cancelled but online activities such as quizzes and photography competitions have been running throughout lockdown on the park’s social media pages.

Further updates on the park’s opening and facilities can be found on the Aden Country Park Facebook page.
