Ury Riverside Park SCIO
The Ury Riverside Park is currently being developed, by the community of Inverurie for people and wildlife together, on the flood plain of the River Ury, through the Ury Riverside Park SCIO.
The park is being developed to be as accessible as possible to all users. A 3km network of paths was installed from 2016, with some bitmac surfaced and others with a crushed stone.
The habitats are being developed to create naturally functioning ecosystems that require minimal intervention.
All the trees and wildflowers planted or sown are from local provenance sources to maintain local genetic diversity and adaptation to the local climate.
In 2022, the group were recognised with the Keep Scotland Beautiful 'Beautiful Scotland and It's Your Neighbourhood' discretionary award - joint winner of Parks and Green Spaces Award.
