Views sought on Aden play park provision

Big Lottery LogoAs part of an “Investing in Ideas” Big Lottery Funded project Buchan Development Partnership (BDP) are working in partnership with Aberdeenshire Council to undertake a public consultation exercise to review the current children’s play park provision available at Aden Country Park in Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire.

Views are being sought on the existing children’s play park provision along with possible future developments of this popular community facility within Aden Country Park. The public will be given the opportunity to have their opinions heard through an online and offline questionnaire, as well as at a series of local events and public meetings.  

Aden Children's Play ParkAden Development Worker, Neil Shirran said:
“It’s really important that we hear what people think about the children’s play park provision in Aden Country Park. Not only will the feedback provide invaluable guidance and support for any future funding applications it also provides another opportunity for the local community and visitors to Aden to get more involved in how this much loved park can be developed for the good of the community”.

“We would therefore be very grateful if you could spare five minutes of your time to complete this survey, helping to both identify the needs, gaps and aspirations of the community, along with providing clear guidance as to how best to improve, maximise, and enhance the children’s play provision and play opportunities in Aden Country Park. You can have your say by visiting and filling in the online questionnaire. It’s your park so please tell us what you think”.
