Friends of Duthie Park
The Friends of Duthie Park's main objective is to increase usage in the park. The group has worked closely with Aberdeen City Council to achieve the Restoration of Duthie Park through the HLF Parks for People Project. It has undertaken various volunteering activities including preparing and carrying out visitor surveys, planting grass seeding and turf laying. The group organises an annual open day which attracts over 5,000 visitors. It has also raised over £40,000 in sponsorship for various projects and activities including Tree Planting, Park Rangers, Open Day, Japanese Garden, Tropical Project, School Workshops, and Disability Beds for the Community Garden.
