Revitalising one of Aberdeen’s best open spaces

Friends of Hazlehead was formed in 2012 by a group of local people with a common interest of improving the park. The Friends is active in seeking funding for improvement projects as well as organising work parties to assist with maintenance.

Hazlehead Park is a real asset to the community of Aberdeen and allows its thousands of visitors many different ways to have fun in the fresh air!

I regularly use Hazlehead Park as part of my athletics training, running around the scenic pony circuit which also links through to Counteswells Forest. It is fantastic to have such a facility in the city centre. The park has so many features that make it a fun and interesting place to be for people of all ages, it really is a jewel in Aberdeen’s crown.

Myles Edwards, Founder of Gathimba Edwards Foundation

Having grown up in Hazlehead I’m delighted to see the regeneration of the area, especially given the decline in recent years. The commitment being made to restoring the park and surrounding areas by Friends of Hazlehead is fantastic and I’m delighted to be part of this.
