Youngsters in Aberdeen are being challenged to come up with the name for a new children’s play area.
A roof garden is being created on the St Nicholas Centre, and the play area will be focal point when it opens next month.
The garden, made possible thanks to £200,000 of funding, will contain wildflowers and plants and has been designed to breathe life into the city centre, while also encouraging families to enjoy the outdoors, perhaps with a picnic, in the new seating area.
Now primary school pupils across the city are being asked to submit their ideas for what the area should be named.
Gary Craig, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, said: “The roof garden enhancement continues to move forward and we’re pleased with how things are shaping up – you can really notice a difference already to the aesthetic of the space.
“The school competition adds another element to the project as, with the new play area set to be a main focus of the garden, we are keen to let as many youngsters as possible know about the plans for the space.
“We want to help create a buzz of excitement in advance of the work being completed and I look forward to reading through the suggestions that are submitted.”
The children’s play area will be unveiled along with the rest of the garden on October 3 at a family open day, where the winning name will also be announced and marked with a special plaque.
