A community trust has secured more than £160,000 to turn a disused bowling green into a market garden and cafe.
With the money, the trust hopes to buy the Bonnymuir Bowling Green, and the accompanying pavilion, using the Community Right to Buy scheme.
Plans for the plot include the creation of a green space in the city including a market garden and a community building with cafe, meeting space and retail space for locally grown produce.
John Wigglesworth, Bonnymuir Green Community Trust co-chairman, said: “We are extremely pleased with this decision by the Scottish Land Fund and now look forward to working together with the trustees of the Bonnymuir Bowling Club to effect the purchase of this wonderful site and turn it into a sustainable community resource.
“We are also very grateful to our local community for its continued support over the past two years and a shared belief in our vision to develop a community-based market garden, education space and cafe that everyone can benefit from,” he added.
Aberdeen Central MSP Kevin Stewart congratulated the trust on its achievement.
He said: “This is excellent news, and I am absolutely thrilled that the Bonnymuir Green Community Trust can bring life back into the bowling green and transform it for the whole community with this major funding win.
“Credit is due to the hard-working volunteers who have put in the work to make this happen, and I am pleased their efforts and vision have been recognised with this Scottish Land Fund award.”
He added: “This is well deserved and shows the dedication of the SNP Scottish Government to empower communities and enable real, positive change to happen.”
The Bonnymuir Bowling Green was closed in 2015.
The trust set up last year in the hope of buying out the private land.
If the group is successful, it will be the first in the north-east to claim private land using community buyout legislation passed by the Scottish Government in 2015.
