Hazlehead Park to see “tree-mendous” boost

Aberdeen City Council is poised to begin essential tree maintenance later this month in an effort to breathe new life into Hazlehead Park.

The process, which starts on April 18, will see some trees felled and others replanted in the 180-acre park, which is the largest in Aberdeen and has historical connections, extending from Robert the Bruce to Mary Queen of Scots and the Queen Mother.

Jean Morrison, the local authority’s infrastructure vice convener, said: “Hazlehead Park is close to the hearts of all Aberdonians and known across the world, so it is good that we have a chance to make a difference to the tree population.

“The park is becoming even more popular with residents and visitors alike, due to its wide range of attractions along with fantastic walks”.

The venue has ample facilities including play parks, a café, a maze and a Pets’ Corner. It also plays host to year-round events such as Aberdeen’s Highland Games and has a famous Queen Mother Rose Garden, along with the Piper Alpha Memorial Garden.

Chairman of Friends of Hazlehead, Donald Shaw, said the group had been “working closely” with the parks and countryside team at the council and had raised around £500,000 over the past three years to invest in the park’s regeneration.

Mr Shaw said: “It’s great to see this campaign to help redevelop and future-proof this wonderful green space.”
