The “Friends of Duthie Park” was set up in 2006 as a charitable organisation established to promote Aberdeen’s world famous park, one of the most popular tourist attractions within the Granite City.

The Friends work closely with the Park’s owners, Aberdeen City Council to provide a positive mouth piece for the Park’s users.

The Friends organisation was closely involved with the successful bid by Aberdeen City Council for Heritage Lottery Funding to restore areas of the Park to their former glory. Following the restoration, the Park was officially re-opened on Sunday 30th June 2013.

They actively encourage membership of the organisation, which currently is free, as they are always interested in facts, knowledge or ideas for the Park.

Please browse around this site whether it be to join the organisation, learn about the history of the park or about future events.
