Plans for the roof garden near the St Nicholas Centre were announced earlier this year, with over £200,000 in funding secured for the project, including support from Aberdeen Inspired, Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeen Greenspace Trust, Bon Accord & St Nicholas, Aberdeen Forward, Atkins and Creative Core.

The area has been earmarked for a number of additions in an effort to encourage more people to use the city space on a regular basis.At the heart of the space will be a children’s play area and business organisation Aberdeen Inspired, along with shopping centre Bon Accord & St Nicholas are looking for the help of schools from across the city to come up with a name for what will be the focal point of the garden.

The revamp is set to be unveiled on October 3 at a family friendly open day, where the winning name for the play area will also be announced and marked with a special plaque.

We are delighted to announce that one of our entries was picked as the winner!

‘The Silver City Playground’ named by William Stewart P4/5K has been selected as the winner of the competition! A special plaque will be placed in the garden to let everyone know who named it. 

The garden is set to re-open with a family fun day next weekend, Saturday October 3.
