Access work begins at St. Fittick’s Park

Landscaping work has begun at St. Fittick’s Park to improve access to the playpark facilities and the historic St. Fittick’s Church ruins. 

The new pedestrian access routes-and the upgrading of existing paths-will connect the playpark with residential areas, and improve connectivity between St. Fittick’s Road, Church and the wider park.  In addition, the fence that runs along one side of the church wall will be removed to enhance the visuals surrounding the area. 

The landscaping work follows the installation of new play equipment in St. Fittick’s Park.  All of the work has been completed as part of the Detailed Mitigation and Compensation Plan associated with the Aberdeen Harbour Expansion Project.

Michelle Handforth, Chief Executive of Aberdeen Harbour Board, said: “It is a real pleasure to know that our Expansion Project will bring benefits to local residents and visitors to the area, for years to come.

“Aberdeen Harbour is a Trust Port, and this status plays an important role in everything we do.  We are fully committed to our guiding purpose, which is to create prosperity for generations to come, and we hope that the improved work in St. Fittick’s Park will bring enjoyment to many.”
