Work has begun on transforming a city park as part of £1.3 million plans to makeover play areas around the city.
As part of the scheme Aberdeen City Council has now started taking down play equipment including swings, picnic tables and a shelter at Westburn Park.
The transformation of the popular park is expected to take a fortnight, depending on weather.
While the play area will close for the duration, the park will remain open.
The installation of new equipment is part of a rolling programme, which has taken place over the past few years, and also includes an annual play equipment audit.
The total allocated for revamping playparks in the city includes £450,000 in capital funding and an additional £826,000 revenue funding, with playparks selected on a priority basis.
Friends of Victoria and Westburn Park chairman Peter Stephen was pleased to see the transformation begin.
He said: “We are absolutely delighted to see that things are starting.
“The work will bring the park up to date and keep it the vibrant and well-used park it is.
“It’s an exciting upgrade to our park especially after the new cycle track was opened and we have the skate park to look forward to as well.”
The city’s communities, housing and infrastructure committee agreed to the £1.3m spend at a meeting in May last year, after a community consultation period.
The plans were also shown at some of the schools in each area so youngsters were able to have their say on the playground apparatus.
Westfield Park, Stewart Park and Hilton Community Centre, as well the play areas on Portal Terrace, Devenick Place, The Meadows and Colthill Road will all have equipment upgrades as part of the programme.
