Friends of Victoria & Westburn Parks
The FVWP is a very active volunteer group, with members drawn from the local community. The group meets every Saturday morning to work in the parks on projects such as refurbishing areas of the parks, maintaining areas already improved, litter picks, planting bulbs and other new plants. Over the past year, community members of all ages put in over 1,600 hours of work to improve the parks.
The group holds regular meetings with representatives of Aberdeen City Council's Environmental Services staff and local Councillors to discuss on-going issues and agree what projects the FVWP will progress.
In 2019, Friends of Victoria and Western Parks was awarded a Certificate of Distinction to further recognise the groups' achievements.
