A new playpark has opened at a new housing development in Aberdeen.
The new community play area was opened by children and Play Scotland at Countesswells.
Families, including 12 children who have moved into the new neighbourhood, took part in ceremony for the park, which boasts rustic swings, stepping logs, slides and rope climbing frames.
Countesswells, which is being phased in over 15 years, will ultimately feature four large parks including the 11-hectare Cults Burn Park, 3,000 new homes, schools, shops and health and leisure facilities.
Allan McGregor, project director for Countesswells, added: “Countesswells is a 15-year long project we’re creating with families and the next generation in mind.
“This playpark is the first to open in our community, but by no means the last, as we firmly believe that giving children resources for play is instrumental in their development and a cornerstone to creating a genuine community.”
